After more than fifty years of surveys of many taxonomic groups, the biodiversity of the Huron Mountains is unusually well-documented. This All-Taxa Biodiversity Inventory (ATBI) draws on data from Foundation research reports to compile a complete list of all taxa so far recorded from the lands of the Huron Mt. Club. The ATBI is updated periodically; the most recent can be downloaded here:
Woods, K.D. (Compiler). 2020. An all-taxa biodiversity inventory of the Huron Mountain Club. Version February 2020. Occasional papers of the Huron Mountain Wildlife Foundation, No. 5. .
This is the ninth compilation since 2006; earlier versions are available from the Foundation’s Director of Research on request.
Currently, the listing includes 5470 species — an increase of more than 1000 since the first compilation in 2006. Major additions include: nearly 100 caddisflies (Insecta:Trichoptera), several orders of bacteria, nearly 200 new species of moths (Insecta:Lepidoptera) supplementing a similar addition in the previous update, and a number of fungi and miscellaneous species of other groups. Here is a breakdown by major taxonomic group:
The full species list, with taxonomic hierarchy is also available in spreadsheet format on request to the Foundation’s Director.
