Threatened and endangered plants in NJ

"The Natural Heritage Database is a continuously updated inventory of rare plants and animal species and representative ecological communities in New Jersey. It is the state's most comprehensive, centralized source of information on rare plants, animals, and natural communities. The Database is a compilation of information from a broad range of sources including museum and herbarium collection records, publications, knowledgeable experts, and fieldwork. It contains information collected by the Office of Natural Lands Management on rare plants, animals, and ecological communities as well as data on rare animals provided by the Endangered and Nongame Species Program. The Database is continuously updated and improved as new data is obtained. Information from this database is available to assist individuals in the preservation of habitat for rare species and ecological communities."

An explanation of the ranking (S1, G4, etc.): http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/natural/heritage/spplant_ap1.html

There are over 800 endangered plants and species of special concern in NJ. This list is far from complete, these are just the plants I've seen from the list. I've only selected one photo of each to include in this gallery with one exception. In the case of Aplectrum hyemale I've also included a photo of the leaf as that is also diagnostic in identifying the plant. There are many more photos of each plant elsewhere on my site.
