Conserving Mammals at Risk: The Role of Taxonomy (in Proc. Conference Biology & Management of Species and Habitats at Risk) Nagorsen, David W.
1999

Abstract: A number of mammalian species, subspecies, and populations are designated at risk both nationally and by the province of British Columbia. Despite the perception that the taxonomy of mammals is well known, major taxonomic problems are associated with some of these taxa. Species limits and reliable identification traits need to be determined for several problematic species groups. Moreover, the validity of many of the subspecies listed at risk is unknown. Some were described more than 50 years ago from small samples and descriptive methodology, and modern research is essential to determine if they represent distinct evolutionary units that warrant protection. We use recent research on listed subspecies of chipmunks (Tamias spp.), northern pocket gophers (Thomomys talpoides), and southern red-backed voles (Clethrionomys gapperi) from the Kootenay region of British Columbia to illustrate how taxonomy is critical for delimiting conservation units...
