Rare in Colorado

By Susan Spackman Panjabi, Colorado Natural Heritage Program, CSU

Colorado’s diverse plant communities, varied geologic settings and broad elevation range support habitat for numerous rare plant species. While some species are more common in other parts of their range, numerous species are known only from Colorado, and are therefore considered rare on a global scale. Come learn about some of the rarest species, why they are rare, and efforts underfoot to prevent them from going extinct in a state with extensive development pressures.

Susan Spackman Panjabi is a Botanist with the Colorado Natural Heritage Program at Colorado State University. She had focused her research on the rare plants of Colorado for the past 14 years and is the principal author of the Colorado Rare Plant Field Guide. Susan is currently working with a state-wide team of botanists on the Colorado Rare Plant Initiative, which aims to boost the effectiveness of rare plant conservation efforts across Colorado.
