All-Taxa Biodiversity Inventory

After nearly a century 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 as well as prior studies 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 version can be downloaded here:

ATBI v. July 2023

Woods, K.D. (Compiler). 2023. An all-taxa biodiversity inventory of the Huron Mountain Club. Version July 2023. Occasional papers of the Huron Mountain Wildlife Foundation, No. 5. .

This is the tenth compilation since 2006; earlier versions are available from the Foundation’s Director of Research on request.  Currently, the listing includes about 5900 species; about 1800 have been added  since the first compilation in 2006.

Since the first version of the ATBI in 2007, species have been added at a rate of a little over 100 per year.

While listings for some groups (notably vertebrates and plants), listings for many other groups are certainly incomplete.  The linked document includes a break-down by major group.

The full species list, with taxonomic hierarchy is also available in spreadsheet format on request to the Foundation’s Director.
