I’m confused why the domestic rabbit, an invasive subspecies of the European rabbit seems to have all the conservation statuses from the European rabbit. I put the domestic rabbit down as least concern, but the list on the taxon page includes everything from European rabbit as well. Is this as intended?
Also true for varieties – see the domestic swan goose, listed as vulnerable because of the status on the parent species.
Meadow Jumping Mouse as a species is a Least Concern, but two of its subspecies – New Mexico and Preble’s – are federally listed and thus their location data on iNat is obscured. I believe iNat accurately reflects the different statuses of the species as a whole vs the vulnerable subspecies.
But I can see in some cases the status in some populations can get carried over into other populations where it does not apply. An example is Aoudad (Barbary Sheep) which as a species is considered Vulnerable in its native rage but also in the introduced U.S. populations, where that status really does not apply.
