Abstract

Results of surveys conducted from 1996 to 2004 support the endemic status of Solidago albopilosa in Kentucky as well as confirm that this species is limited to three counties in the Red River Gorge, although 35 new sites are added to the previously delimited distribution. An assessment of the status of this species identifies recreation as the primary cause for a decline in S. albopilosa populations. During our monitoring effort, 86% of S. albopilosa sites were impacted by recreation, and 33% of these were classed as severe.
