Production Note:

COSEWIC acknowledges the late George W. Douglas for writing the status report on the Baikal sedge, Carex sabulosa. This status report was produced with the initiative of Parks Canada, and with funding from Yukon NatureServe and Parks Canada. The COSEWIC status report review was overseen by Erich Haber, co-chair (vascular plants) of the COSEWIC Plants and Lichens Specialist Subcommittee, with input from members of COSEWIC. That review may have resulted in changes and additions to the initial version of the report.
