Long-toed Salamander

Status

Based on more current information, the Long-toed Salamander was down-listed from Alberta's 'Red List' to the 'Yellow B List' in 1996. 'Yellow List' species are those that are not currently at risk although there may arise potential problems related to low populations, limited provincial distribution or demographic/life history features that could make them vulnerable to anthropomorphic alterations. The 'B' classification applies to species that are naturally rare but not in decline, have a clumped distribution or are associated with habitats potentially at risk. The Alberta Natural Heritage Information Centre has assigned a provincial rank of S3 to the Long-toed Salamander because of its association with sensitive habitats.
