One of the primary functions of the Gulf Coast Network (GULN) Data Management Staff is to work with park resources staff to develop and maintain verified, substantiated, and certified vascular plant and vertebrate species lists for each network park. The information presented in these web-based species lists are subsets of data managed in NPSpecies, which is the master biodiversity database for the National Park Service, and is the tool used by GULN for meeting this goal.

The species lists presented here have all gone through a certification process. This involves the evaluation and review of the species information by local experts who are well-versed in the biology, taxonomy and nomenclature of species in the network parks.

Using the pick-lists below, you can view abbreviated or detailed species lists by park and by taxonomic group. The taxa covered are vascular plants, mammals, fish, amphibians, reptiles and birds.
