Production note

COSEWIC acknowledges the late George W. Douglas and also Mr. Jacques Labrecque for writing the status report on the mountain holly fern, Polystichum scopulinum. This status report was produced with the initiative and funding of the British Columbia Conservation Data Centre. 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.
