The Pennsylvania Natural Heritage Program (PNHP) inventories and maintains a list of all plant and wildlife species,
plant communities, and geologic features in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for which there is conservation concern. The PNHP inventories include Rare,
Threatened, and Endangered species, as well as species with unique or specific habitat needs or declining populations. This list represents the most up-to-date,
accurate, scientific information available and reflects current species terminology.
The list below is an inclusive list of all species or communities inventoried by PNHP and is more extensive than the list of species and communities used for environmental review in the PNDI tool.
