The Yellow List for British Columbia is defined as the list of vertebrate species not at risk in the province. It includes 493 species and subspecies. To help both wildlife managers and habitat managers make decisions about priorities, these taxa are also listed in five sublists with the following headings: Species maintained by ecosystem management; Conservation species (associated with a habitat or habitat element that is becoming rare or declining); Species managed for hunting, trapping or falconry; Species for which British Columbia has a global responsibility; and Non-native species. The Yellow List is consistent with the most recent Red and Blue Lists (Wildlife Branch, in prep.). It is presented by species except when subspecies are necessary to mesh with the Red and Blue Lists or when subspecies are listed s S4 by the Conservation Data Centre (see criteria in Appendix 3).
