|Would it be possible to include a check box that would allow entry to show where a species falls on the IUCN lists?|
The options that would need to be included are:
Extinct in the Wild (EW)
Critically Endangered (CR)
Near Threatened (NT)
Least Concern (LC)
Data Deficient (DD)
Not Evaluated (NE)
Thanks for considering this.

|That sounds like a useful addition.|
Does there exist anywhere a spreadsheet of plants on this list? If so, I might be able to automatically check off some or all of them.

|I can not, for the life of me, find an easy to look through list, never mind a spreadsheet....|

|If you click on the tabs (LC, NT, VU, EN, CR, EW, EX) below the search box, you'll get a list of all organisms in the respective categories. They aren't sorted by Kingdom, just listed out alphabetically by genus.|
Can you run your robot against those lists, Dave, looking for matching entries in the Plant Database?

|Saw those lists...did not occur to me that perhaps a bot could be programmed to run through it that way. Great thought Kent! Hope it'll be doable.|

I'm thinking we can leave out at least the bottom two. Why include them at all if they were either not evaluated or they don't yet have enough data?

|The robot had no trouble at all on this and the work is complete!|
4,316 of the plants in the IUCN list didn't exist on ATP and therefore were created. If the admins want me to back that part out, I can easily remove all those newly created plants. Let me know.
18,293 total plants were found in the IUCN list. The breakdown of their status is as follows:
Some of the plants in the list had a non-standard designation and therefore were ignored.
These have all been inserted and the appropriate checkboxes checked off. You can see them through the Search by Characteristics page. http://garden.org/plants/searc...

|One final update: I enhanced the Plant View Page to add a nice graphic for the conservation status of plants if one of the options had been selected. You can see an example on the right on this page: Amburana cearensis|
Look above the thumbnail image.

|This is great!|

|Wow. VERY nice work Dave. I never thought such a small suggestion would results in such a nice addition to the site! Thank you very much.|

|Thanks Rob, I'm glad you like it, and I'm especially glad that you suggested it. Great idea!|

|Watch for misspelled duplicates. One of the new ones added was Dalea humifosa. It should be D. humifusa, which was already in the database.|

|Never mind. Unnecessary post.|
