Comments Close:

The United States Fish and Wildlife Service is initiating a 5-year status review of the Aleutian shield fern (Polystichum aleuticum). This 5-year status review under the Endangered Species Act is being conducted to ensure that the classification of the Aleutian shield fern as endangered on the Lists of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants is accurate. The review is an assessment of the best scientific and commercial data available at the time. The Fish and Wildlife Service is therefore requesting any information that has become available since the last review; a list of the specific information considered in the status review can be found here.
