Recovery Strategy for Deerberry (Vaccinium stamineum) in Canada

Appendix I: Effects on the environment and other species

Recovery actions identified in the Recovery Strategy are expected to positively affect or have no significant adverse environmental impacts on the environment and other species. Most of the recovery actions involve stewardship, outreach, collaboration, monitoring, research or management planning. These actions will generally improve the state of knowledge, awareness and support for preserving these ecosystems and the species found within them. It will also promote collaboration between various conservation partners. Negative effects are short-term, low impact, local in magnitude and mostly involve small-scale removal of flora. The effects caused by the prescribed burns recommended in the Schedule of Studies, will also be mostly positive, as the burns will only be conducted in ecosystems that have evolved in response to fire or other similar disturbances in the past.
