Rare Species Lists by County

We have generated the following lists of species by Alabama county from the data we maintain in our database. This database is of all elements (rare species and natural communities) tracked by ALNHP for which locations have been recorded in ALNHP's Biotics database. Each list contains the species and natural communities for which we have element occurrences in that county along with state, federal, and heritage rankings. For more information on what these rankings mean, please consult this ranking system definitions document. These lists are not meant to be exhaustive. Please see our notes at the bottom of the page for data limitations.

Please click on the lists below that you would like to download. They should automatically download as Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to your computer. If you do not see them open, check your "Downloads" folder on your computer.

Note:

  • These are working lists that are frequently revised. Information from the database cannot provide a definitive statement on the presence, absence, or condition of the elements in any given locality, because much of the state has not been specifically or thoroughly surveyed for their occurrence and the conditions at previously surveyed sites are constantly changing. The County Elements Lists should be used as a reference of which elements currently or historically were recorded in the county and should be considered when developing land use plans.
  • Bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), red-cockaded woodpeckers (Picoides borealis) and American peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus anatum) may occur in any county, if suitable habitat exists.

If you have any questions or comments regarding these lists, or if you would like would like more information, please contact Katelyn Lawson at klawson@auburn.edu
