We've been on a roll on this list with interesting outside references, so I
thought I'd throw in one more. "States of the Union, Ranking America's
Biodiversity" is a 27 page report produced by the people who run the
natureserve website, in turn run by The Nature Conservancy. It's a summary
of how different American states are doing with risk, extinction, endemism
and overall biodiversity. For instance, Alabama is correctly listed as
having the most diverse freshwater fish biota with 284 species, just ahead
of Tennessee at 283. It's available as a .pdf download.
