InfoNatura represents a "snapshot" of dynamic data that are continually being refined in NatureServe's central databases. We update InfoNatura one to two times each year to reflect new data from refined geographic surveys, the latest taxonomic treatments, and any new conservation status assessments. Future versions of InfoNatura will include data for additional taxonomic groups such as reptiles.
