Some are only rare in certain parts of their distribution, whereas others only occurs in a very small geographic area that is under a distinct threat and therefore are rare. Habitat loss is the major threat to gentians. Grazed meadows that disappear in northern Europe, cutting down of rain and cloud forests in the tropics, and habitat destruction because of cities that spread out and agriculture on new lands. Some gentians are becoming rare due to over-collecting in the wild, often for pharmacological purposes. Gentians are usually not close to extinction because they are picked by people, but because they no longer have the right place to live. But do not dig up gentians or try to transplant them. Many gentians only live for a year or two and most have connections to the fungi in the soil (mycorrhizae) that they need to survive.

44. About The Endangered Species Act
list to protect those species within the entire United States which are consideredto be threatened, endangered, or Specie of Concern of becoming extinct.
About the Endangered Species Act Overview: How is a species listed?: For a species to be listed at any level, there must be a status review of the species population and habitat. This extensive scientific analysis, which is performed by either the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), State Departments of Fish and Wildlife, or the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), is then taken into consideration for any proposed listing. Once a species is listed: What do the categories "extinct", "endangered", and "threatened" mean? Extinct A species that once lived on earth and no longer does. These populations are considered to be of history and are gone forever. Although currently, the term extinction holds many negative connotations, extinction is nothing new. In fact, extinction is apart of life and has been occurring since life began on Earth. However, today extinction is considered to be occurring at alarmingly fast rates. Endangered The Endangered Species Act of 1973 defines an endangered species as any plant or animal species that is in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range. In other words, these are populations which are still alive today but exist in numbers so low or are decreasing so rapidly that they are in immediate danger of extinction. Threatened = The Endangered Species Act of 1973 defines a threatened species as one that is likely to become an endangered species within the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of its range if factors contributing to their population decline or habitat degradation or loss continue. In other words, this is a species populations which has been in decline and unless some type of protective measures are put into place, this species will be Endanger (in danger) of becoming extinct.

Species at Risk There are 353 species in Canada that have been designated as at risk in some way as of May 2000. This number constantly changes as species are added to this list, go extinct or are no longer deemed at risk and removed from the list. Within the list, there are several different categories of risk: special concern, threatened, endangered, extirpated (no longer found in Canada but not extinct), and extinct. For more information on why species are threatened, see the Conservation Issues section. Which species in Canada are considered to be at risk is determined by an organization called COSEWIC; see the Legislation section for more details on COSEWIC.

Endangered and Threatened Species of Butterflies and Moths Some butterflies and moths have become very rare, primarily because of people's activities and destruction of butterfly habitats.; some butterflies have become rare, threatened, endangered, and even extinct. The Xerces blue butterfly is the first butterfly in North America to become extinct due to human activity. There are currently 27 insects (including 16 Lepidoptera) listed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as threatened or endangered in the United States, and they are protected under the provisions of the Endangered Species Act wherever they may be found. The butterfly and moth species are: COMMON NAME SCIENTIFIC NAME STATUS RANGE Bay checkerspot (butterfly) Euphydryas editha bayensis Threatened: Californi a El Segundo blue (butterfly) Euphilotes battoides allyni Endangered California Karner blue (butterfly) Lycaeides melissa samuelis Endangered northeastern North America Kern primrose sphinx moth Euproserpinus euterpe Threatened California Lange's metalmark (butterfly) Apodemia mormo langei Endangered California Lotis blue (butterfly) Lycaeides argyrognomon lotis Endangered California Mission blue (butterfly) Icaricia icarioides missionesis Endangered California Mitchell's satyr (butterfly) Neonympha mitchellii mitchellii Endangered Great Lakes region Myrtle's silverspot (butterfly) Speyeria zerene myrtleae Endangered California Oregon silverspot (butterfly) Speyeria zerene hippolyta Threatened Oregon Palos Verde blue (butterfly) Glaucopsyche lygdamus paloverdesensis

    A threatened species is still abundant in its natural range but is likely to become endangered due to a decline in numbers.
    An endangered species has so few individuals that the species could soon become extinct in all or most of its natural range.
    An extirpated species is one that has disappeared from a specified geographic area, such as a state or country, but not from the whole planet. For instance, the brown bear was extirpated from Illinoisit can no longer be found in this state, though it still inhabits other parts of the United States.
    An extinct species is one that has completely disappeared from the earth.

April-May, 1999
I never really thought about extinct species until I read your article "Saying Goodbye" [December/January 1999]. I guess like many people I didn't relate losing species to anything in my own life. It all seems so distant to a city dweller like myself. But the author, Mark Jerome Walters, changed my perspective. His essay was not only moving, it also made me realize that we should care about all species, even when they don't live in our immediate backyard. Opponents of endangered-species protection programs might say that it's a bunch of corny rhetoric, but I think we should all understand that every species is interconnected and that to lose one threatens the survival of othersincluding human beings.

This publication is designed to help landowners, land managers, planners and developers understand the Federal Endangered Species Act so they can plan, design and implement farming, land development or other practices in harmony with the environment.
Animals or plants are classified as endangered if they face extinction throughout all or a large part of their range. Plants or animals are classified as threatened if they are likely to become endangered in the foreseeable future. Only a few animals and plants in Kentucky are endangered. Several animals, like the white-tailed deer, are more abundant today than at any other time during history.
Animals and plants can be abundant, common, rare, threatened or endangered in different parts of their ranges. For example, the American alligator has been classified as endangered or threatened in some areas, whereas in other areas it is abundant and may be legally harvested under the supervision of the state wildlife agency. The number and types of animals and plants listed as threatened or endangered changes constantly because new species are added or others are deleted. Unfortunately, species are usually removed from the list because they have become extinct. The list provided in this publication is subject to change. The most current information on endangered and threatened species in your area may be obtained by contacting the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, the Kentucky State Nature Preserves Commission or the Cooperative Extension Service.

Thursday, April 08, 2004 By Rick Callahan, Associated Press
Hundreds of imperiled species around the world, from a tiny opossum to a radiant blue bird, lack protection from human encroachment despite the vast amount of land set aside for conservation, a new study warns.
Researchers said the findings are a wake-up call pointing to the need for new strategies to ensure that protected lands and ranges of threatened species overlap.
At present, the largest protected areas are in desert or cold climates where the biodiversity is far lower than in tropical areas teeming with life, said Stuart L. Pimm, a professor of ecology at Duke University.
"The protected areas tend to be in the wrong places. We have huge national parks in Alaska but few protected areas in biologically rich places like Florida or Hawaii," said Pimm, who was not involved in the research.
The findings appear in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature
They found that for about 12 percent of the species, their ranges did not include parks or nature preserves that would protect them from human activities such as logging, hunting, or mining operations.

of these species the Tecopa pupfish, longjaw cisco, blue pike, and Santa Barbara song sparrow were protected under laws pre-dating the ESA, and therefore
were automatically listed under the ESA when it passed in 1973. They were apparently already extinct by 1973, however. Tecopa pupfish . The Tecopa pupfish (Cyprinodon nevaensis) was first described in 1948 from the outflow streams of the north and south Tecopa Hot Springs,
north of Tecopa, California. In 1970, the declining Tecopa pupfish population was listed on both the federal and California endangered species lists due to habitat
alteration and introductions of exotic species, primarily bluegill sunfish and mosquito fish. By 1972, the species no longer occurred where the species was first found.
Surveys done in 1977 failed to locate any other populations. In 1982, the FWS determined the Tecopa pupflsh was extinct and removed it from the endangered
species list (47 FR 2317).

Cicindela dorsalis dorsalis
The Wildlife and Heritage Service Natural Heritage Program tracks the status of over 1,100 native plants and animals that are among the rarest in Maryland and most in need of conservation efforts as elements of our State's natural diversity. Of these species, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources officially recognizes 659 species and subspecies as endangered, threatened, in need of conservation, or endangered extirpated. Only 37, or 3% of the total tracked species, are listed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as nationally endangered or threatened. The primary State law that allows and governs the listing of endangered species is the Nongame and Endangered Species Conservation Act (Annotated Code of Maryland 10-2A-01). This Act is supported by regulations (Code of Maryland Regulations 08.03.08) which contain the official State Threatened and Endangered Species list.
Secondarily, DNR's Fisheries Service maintains an official list of game and commercial fish species that are designated as threatened or endangered in Maryland (Code of Maryland Regulations 08.02.12).
