Summary
Abstract: The Atlantic Canada Conservation Data Centre (AC CDC) collects data on rare
species and natural communities in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward
Island, Newfoundland, and Labrador and in adjacent marine waters. To determine
which species are rare, the AC CDC develops sub-national (i.e. provincial)
rarity ranks, or S-ranks, for each jurisdiction. These ranks are established

Quality Species identification accurate, assessment of species rarity is done with
local species experts and is as accurate as possible given the current state of
species information.Occurrence location data for populations of rare species of
anadromous fish and marine birds are included for a jurisdiction (an Atlantic
province plus Labrador) only if the species is determined to be rare in that
jurisdiction. Data for occurrences of rare species of marine mammals is
included for the Bay of Fundy only.

Data are usually requested by species or by location (e.g., at a given locale
or within a specified area, the identification of all rare species present)
Access Constraints none
Use Constraints noneData users are advised that ACCDC data does not provide a conclusive
statement on the presence, absence or condition of rare species in any part of
Atlantic Canada. The ACCDC makes a strong effort to verify the accuracy of all
the data it obtains, generates and manages, but it will not be held responsible
for inaccuracies in data that it provides. Data accuracy is qualified as to
the date of the survey from which the AC CDC compiled the rare species data
into its databases.
