Citizen Science Rare Plant Monitoring Program

Monitored Species Gallery

Below is a listing of species monitored by Plants of Concern. Some have been comprehensively monitored across the region while others are tracked in one or two targeted locations. On this page, you'll find the Illinois conservation status of each species (E = state endangered, T = state threatened, R = considered rare by POC). A few species also have a federal status (+ = Federally threatened, ++ = Federally endangered). Growth form is the way that species is counted during monitoring, and bloom window is the range of dates when that species is known to be reproductive. Clicking a species will show you additional information, including the conservation status of that species in all states where POC has monitored it, as well as other life history information and a gallery of photos for educational use.
