Abstract

The conservation status and trend of rare species groups should be better in landscapes with more forest cover due to the presence of quantitatively more habitat, and in the case of aquatic species,qualitatively better habitat. Arkansas provides habitat for 97 species of plants and animals considered critically imperiled globally or imperiled globally.T hese 97 species were grouped by broad taxonomic and habitat affinities. The ecoregional distribution,conservation status,and conservation trends of the species groups were analyzed in light of the 995-96 Forest Survey of Arkansas.
