Recovery Strategy for the Red Mulberry (Morus rubra) in Canada


This recovery strategy addresses the recovery of Red Mulberry across its native range in Canada, (i.e. the Carolinian Life Zone of southern Ontario).

The Minister of the Environment is the "competent minister", on behalf of both Parks Canada Agency and Environment Canada, for this species under SARA. Parks Canada Agency adapted this recovery strategy, in cooperation with Environment Canada, from a more detailed draft document prepared by the OMNR, which itself was based on a document originally developed by the Red Mulberry Recovery Team. The Royal Botanical Gardens; Hamilton, Niagara Peninsula, and Halton Conservation Authorities; Niagara Parks Commission; Ontario Forest Research Institute; Nature Conservancy of Canada; academia; and private consultants all provided valuable contributions. All responsible jurisdictions reviewed the strategy.
