Response Statements

Response Statement - Griscom's Arnica

This mat-forming plant is a Canadian Gulf of St. Lawrence endemic found only on small, isolated calcareous cliffs and limestone barrens of Quebec and the Island of Newfoundland, is increasingly under threat due to habitat shift in response to a changing climate. The instability of some sites increases the threat of a stochastic event that could result in the loss of some small subpopulations. ATV use in limestone barrens is of some concern.

Consultation period: 2015-12-23 to 2016-05-04
