United Plant Savers medicinal plant at-risk list project.

2012 to 2013
Primary Contact: 
Research Location: 
University of Kansas


The United Plant Savers (UpS) is known for having developed “The List” of medicinal plants at risk for over-harvest.  This list is an important resource for the herbal product industry, regulatory agencies, and conservation organizations.  This project will evaluate and improve the scoring tool used to rank at-risk plants by soliciting information from knowledgeable individuals, collecting field data for key species, and conducting an analysis of the scores derived from the tool.    

Funding: United Plant Savers, $8,000
