This multi-species recovery strategy has been developed to guide the recovery of plant species at risk that occur in a landscape south of Princeton, BC. The target species at risk are dwarf woolly-heads, southern mountain population (Psilocarphus brevissimus var. brevissimus), slender collomia (Collomia tenella), and stoloniferous pussytoes (Antennaria flagellaris). These species' ranges extend south into the western United States. The target species are at risk due to a number of broad categories of threats such as habitat loss or degradation, invasive alien species, changes in ecological dynamics or natural processes, and disturbance. Main concerns are from resource extraction, habitat degradation from recreation and cattle grazing, invasive alien species, and biological factors including demography and genetics. The recovery of the three target species at risk is considered technically and biologically feasible. Broad strategies to address the threats and meet the recovery objectives include communication and outreach, habitat protection and stewardship, site management, inventory, monitoring, scientific research, and population enhancement.
