Status of the western blue flag (Iris missouriensis) in Alberta : update 2005

Description

This wildlife status report looks at the western blue blag, which is the only species of iris native to Alberta. Distributed primarily in the western United States, it penetrates Canada along the southeastern flanks of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta. It is considered rare in Canada and is currently designated as Threatened nationally. This report is intended to summarize the existing information on the species in Alberta to assist with reassessment of its status. It is part of the Alberta Wildlife Status Report series, which provides comprehensive summaries of selected wildlife species intended to be useful to those managing populations of species and their habitats, and to help identify species that may be formally designated as endangered or threatened.
