Recovery Strategy for the Western Spiderwort (Tradescantia occidentalis) in Canada – 2013

8. Measuring Progress

The performance indicators presented below provide a way to define and measure progress toward achieving the population and distribution objectives. Progress towards meeting the population and distribution objectives must be reported within five years after this recovery strategy is finalized. Success of recovery strategy implementation will be measured against the following indicators:

  • All four currently existing populations and any new ones discovered by 2018 are maintained, at a minimum, at their current estimated distributions.
  • Specifically: the Lauder Sand Hills population is maintained in at least 6 quarter sections; the Routledge Sand Hills population is maintained in at least 7 quarter sections, the Elbow Sand Hills population is maintained in at least 18 quarter sections; and the Pakowki Sand Hills population is maintained in at least 8 quarter sections.
