Ecosystem Components - Rare Plant Diversity Some plants are rare because they naturally occur in very specialized habitats or in very low numbers; others may be rare because they have suffered setbacks because of natural processes or pressures from human activities. The highest number of rare plant species is in southern Ontario, where human activity is intensive and extensive. Farming, deforestation, draining of wetlands, and the use of insecticides and herbicides has reduced the populations and areas of distribution of numerous species. The map shows the rare plant diversity per ecoregion. 2010-12-31 2017-01-26 Natural Resources Canada NRCan.geogratis-geogratis.RNCan@canada.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and Technologyecologyenvironmentmapplants Download the English JP2 File through HTTPJP2 http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/eng/6370_ecosystem_components_rare_plant_diversity.jp2 Download the English ZIP (PDF,JPG) file through HTTPZIP http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/eng/6370_ecosystem_components_rare_plant_diversity.zip Download the French JP2 File through HTTPother http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/fra/6370_composantes_ecosysteme_diversite_plantes_rares.jp2 Download the French ZIP (PDF, JPG) File through HTTPZIP http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/fra/6370_composantes_ecosysteme_diversite_plantes_rares.zip
