The mission of the Nevada Natural Heritage Program is "to help coordinate the resource needs of Nevada's diverse biological heritage with human activities." Their website presents a wide range of resources for persons who might be interested in learning about their work in such fields as ecology, land management, land use planning, and conservation. A good way to start is in the "Special Program Area" section, which can be found on the left side of the homepage. Here visitors will find "Ecology Program", which provides information about Nevada's diverse biological heritage contained within special reports, vegetation coverage maps, and atlases of Nevada's mountain ranges. That's not all; also available in the special program area are the Rare Plant Atlas, wildflower reports, and information about ongoing efforts to create an online catalog of the mosses, hornworts, and liverworts of Nevada. The site is rounded out by a listing of the laws and regulations which govern the activities of the Nevada Natural Heritage Program.
