Spoon-leaved Moss (Bryoandersonia Illecebra)

Recovery Strategy for the Spoon-leaved Moss

(Bryoandersonia Illecebra)



December 2005


Spoon-leaved Moss (Bryoandersonia illecebra)


Under the Accord for the Protection of Species at Risk (1996), the federal, provincial, and territorial governments agreed to work together on legislation, programs, and policies to protect wildlife species at risk throughout Canada.

In the spirit of cooperation of the Accord, the Government of Ontario has given permission to the Government of Canada to adopt the Recovery strategy for the Spoon-leaved Moss (Bryoandersonia illecebra) in Canada under Section 44 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA). Details are provided in the appendix of this document.

Following this 60-day comment period starting in July 2006, and until the federal Minister of Environment determines otherwise or the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources formally amends this document, this recovery strategy will be the recovery strategy of the Minister of the Environment of Canada for this species.
