Errata may have been posted with individual Assessments, to document subsequent corrections or clarifications.

We have also been doing a pilot test of Addenda, as a method to maintain the currency of information in the assessments. Fifteen examples of these addenda have been posted as well, underneath the relevant Species Assessment. We would appreciate hearing your feeback about the value of the Addenda, to help us decide whether to pursue this approach. Please e-mail Peter McDonald (peter.mcdonald@usda.gov) your feedback.
