Habitat fragmentation through conversion to agriculture and urban land uses has left the remaining populations, which in some cases consist of individual trees, isolated from other populations. comm. Unique Island habitats may be threatened by double-crested cormorants. and M.T. Its planting is frequently encouraged for urban parklands because of its hardiness and relatively rapid growth rate. However, it is recognized that strategies may also inadvertently lead to environmental effects beyond the intended benefits. Although not documented at any Kentucky Coffee-tree populations, Kudzu has been reported at one location along the Lake Erie shoreline (Dobbyn pers. Biodiversity Explorer: Species Lists, Element Occurrence and Natural Areas databases. The species is also limited by: small, geographically-isolated populations, low rates of sexual reproduction and limited dispersal ability. Kozlowski, T.T. Required conditions are often found in the deciduous floodplain woodlands and woodland edges of marshes where Kentucky Coffee-tree typically grows in Ontario. Destruction is determined on a case by case basis. Bowles, J.M. Dobbyn, S., pers. The species is restricted to southwestern Ontario and occurs only as a rare component in naturally-occurring forest stands (USDA 2007). Bowles, J.M., pers. Turkish Filbert.

The seeds are reported … 6Ramets are genetically identical individuals (i.e., clones) of a plant that has spread vegetatively (i.e., not through sexual reproduction). Woodland Species at Risk Inventory in the St. Clair Region Conservation Authority. Personal communication to Environment Canada – Canadian Wildlife Service via B. Walpole. 3 pp. Although Kentucky Coffee-tree has probably been uncommon in Ontario’s temperate forest for many decades due, in part, to limited sexual reproduction, an apparent lack of dispersal agent and being at the northern extent of its North American range, extensive deforestation has also occurred within the species’ limited range in southwestern Ontario. 2012) notes that submerging the seeds in water for approximately a month was sufficient to soften the outer seed coat to allow successful germination of seed. Erect or Spreading with a High Canopy. Since Kentucky Coffee-tree is a conspicuous species, it is unlikely that many new native populations will be found in the province (COSEWIC 2000). In 1981, six cormorant nests were first observed on East Sister Island, which expanded to a reported 6,028 nests by 2004. Ramets appear to tolerate more shade than seedlings and often occur under partial shade. Section 4: A Habitat Strategy for Lake Erie, in, Lake Erie LaMP 2002 (PDF ; 426 Kb). 2004.

Japanese Pagoda Tree or Scholartree. 3Causal certainty: reflects the degree of evidence that is known for the threat (High: available evidence strongly links the threat to stresses on population viability; Medium: there is a correlation between the threat and population viability e.g. Wires, L.R., F.J. Cuthbert, D.R. Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada. Based on the following four criteria outlined in the draft SARA Policies (Government of Canada 2009), there are unknowns regarding the feasibility of recovery of Kentucky Coffee-tree. Threatened and Endangered Information: This plant is listed by the U.S. federal government or a state. At least four Ontario populations of Kentucky Coffee-tree contain both male and female trees and produce seeds (Craig pers. Johnson, G. R. 1999. Vegetational associates and site characteristics of Kentucky coffeetree, Gymncladus dioicus (L.) K. Koch. 4A wildlife species that is likely to become an endangered species if nothing is done to reverse the factors leading to its extirpation or extinction. However, no comprehensive data on non native populations in Ontario are available. Implementation of this strategy is subject to appropriations, priorities, and budgetary constraints of the participating jurisdictions and organizations. The actual area of critical habitat may much less depending on where the criteria for critical habitat are met. comm. North – South Environmental Inc. 2004. Gymnocladus in Kew Science Plants of the World online. Yeiser, J.L. comm. Of 33 known native populations, 23 are considered extant, with an estimated total population of fewer than 500 mature native trees. University of Guelph Arboretum, Guelph, Ontario. Periodic seasonal flooding is a critical factor influencing forest composition, productivity and distribution of forest communities within large river-floodplain ecosystems (Yin et al. According to Barlow (2002), “this tree simply had to have had a capable herbivore associate to evolve the kind of fruit it still produces”. Vegetation of Wisconsin. Critical habitat for Kentucky Coffee-tree occurs within the 1 × 1 km standardized Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) grid where the critical habitat criteria and methodology described in section 7.1 are met. Water, Air, and Soil Pollution 130: 679-684. Jalava, J.V., P.L. USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Plant Materials Center, Manhattan, Kansas & Kansas State University, Research Forestry. Population and Distribution Objectives, 6. Published online. Personal communication with J. Jalava and Environment Canada – Canadian Wildlife Service, January 2011. The increase in the number of nesting cormorants since the 1980s has led to a corresponding increase in the damage and subsequent death of trees on Middle Island and East Sister Island, including mature Kentucky Coffee-trees (Hebert et al. The UTM grid is a standardized national grid system that indicates the general geographical area containing critical habitat and can be used to highlight areas that contain critical habitat (e.g., by land-use planners, landowners, or during an environmental assessment). 2002. Bowles, J.M., pers. 1980. and C.K. OMNR (Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources). Coffee trees are either male or female and this particular tree is a male cultivar. Male and female flowers are generally produced on separate trees and, when fertilized, form a hard, dark, bean-like pod, which remains on the tree through the winter. Minnesota Extension Service, University of Minnesota. This loss of genetic diversity in turn reduces plant fitness and increases the risk of extirpation by disease or other environmental stressors, human actions or stochastic events. 2007). Gymnocladus dioicus is a species of tree in the genus Gymnocladus of the legume family. The 20 m distance is applied to each observation, with spatially overlapping areas merged together to form larger sites. 2011. Kentucky Coffee-tree (Gymnocladus dioicus) is a moderate-sized canopy tree of the legume family, and is the only member of its genus in North America. 2012). Critical habitat may be identified at restoration sites following long-term monitoring to determine success, extent of suitable habitat and site occupancy. Gymnocladus. Most recently, detailed surveys have been performed on East Sister Island by Ontario Parks and on Middle Island by Jalava, In the mid-1980s, Carolinian Woodlands Recovery Team members J. Ambrose (pers. Gymnocladus dioicus. Published on the internet. Yin, Y., J. C. Nelson, G. V. Swenson, H. A. Langrehr and T. A. Blackburn. Ecologist, Ontario Parks SW Zone. 1999. Review of the population status and management of double-crested cormorants in Ontario. 2011). Kentucky Coffee-tree has evolved a number of characteristics that make it relatively well-adapted to cope with a variety of natural and human-influenced stressors. Agricultural or landscaped areas such as agricultural fields, roadside ditches, fencerows and lawns are not considered suitable habitat as populations occurring within these human-modified environments have limited long-term viability and few chances to repopulate natural habitat (COSEWIC 2000). Of particular concern are the two species of Dog-strangling Vine (Cynanchum rossicum and C. louiseae), which are allelopaths, emitting chemicals that inhibit or prevent growth of other plant species. comm.

More detailed information on the location of critical habitat, to support protection of the species and its habitat, may be requested on a need-to-know basis by contacting Environment Canada – Canadian Wildlife Service. Although competition from terrestrial invasive plants has not been specifically documented as a threat to Kentucky Coffee-tree in Ontario, vigilance should be exercised in relation to this potential threat. 2010. American Hornbeam. 2005. Jacobs (pers. In addition, the hard impermeable seed coat and the lack of existing biological agents to successfully break it, results in infrequent germination; it is estimated that less than 5% of seeds germinate under natural conditions (Wiesehuegel 1935). Gymnocladus dioicus: Kentucky Coffeetree 1. Since elephants in Asia and Africa devour similar seed pods in great quantities, it has been hypothesized that the now-extinct mastodon (Mammut spp.) St Clair Region Conservation Authority. comm. May, N., pers. Critical habitat is the suitable habitat (Section 7.1.1) within a 20 m radial distance of extant native Kentucky Coffee-trees, observed between 1992 and 2011, occurring in natural settings. Rounded Shape. Duffe, D.V. VanNatta, A.R. Given that in Canada the species is found at the northern extent of its North American range and is uncommon, it will likely always be vulnerable to natural and human-influenced stressors. Kartesz, J.T. OMNR (Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources). The seeds require scarification[11] for germination to occur, yet no insect or rodent herbivores are known to have the ability to break the seed coat. comm. Kentucky Coffee-tree populations in Canada are limited by low rates of sexual reproduction. Site occupancy is determined using observations of native occurrences collected between 1992 and 2011. Picturesque shade tree in both summer and winter. Given that the maximum-recorded dbh for Kentucky Coffee-tree in Canada is 106.2 cm (Waldron 2003), the critical root radius is then calculated to be 20 m (106.2 cm × 18 cm = 19.1 m rounded up to the nearest 5 metres). It also appears to be sparsely naturalizing from cultivation. At Walpole Island First Nation the species is found at the woodland edges of prairie habitats (Bowles 2004) at sites of former Anishnaabeg homesteads that have since reverted to prairie (Jacobs, pers. In order to reproduce sexually and allow for genetic exchange, Kentucky Coffee-tree requires the presence of both male and female flowering plants in a population. Elliott (pers. Ottawa. Payne, T. pers. Particularly susceptible are edge trees; many occurrences of Kentucky Coffee-tree in Ontario consist of trees found along edge habitats. It is designated Threatened in Canada under the Species at Risk Act (SARA). Once adequate information is obtained (i.e., detailed location, extent of populations and suitable habitat), additional critical habitat will be identified and may be described within an area-based multi-species at risk action plan developed in collaboration with the Walpole Island First Nation. Waldron, G. 2003. comm. Zaya and Howe 2009 support this and hypothesize that the entire life cycle of Kentucky Coffee-tree is a relic of processes and environments driven by extinct large mammals. This same type of analysis has shown a 41% loss of healthy canopy vegetation on Middle Island between 1995 and 2006 (Hebert et al. How to say gymnocladus dioicus in English? Conservation Biologist, Essex Region Conservation Authority, Essex, Ontario. Ontario Parks is preparing a background document that summarizes a number of studies to investigate the overall effects of cormorants on the island ecosystem (Dobbyn, A cooperative restoration program involving Walpole Island First Nation and the Sherwood Fox Arboretum of the University of Western Ontario (UWO) has been established to restore or increase native populations at priority locations such as Walpole Island First Nation (Jacobs, The University of Guelph Arboretum has a living gene bank of many of the Ontario populations of Kentucky Coffee-tree collected in the mid 1980s (Ambrose, The largest confirmed sexually-reproducing population, the Canard River Floodplain – Anderdon Township population, occurs on public land (Canard Valley Conservation Area owned by the Essex Region Conservation Authority); the site was identified for the focus of habitat restoration activities, as part of a larger Biodiversity Conservation Strategy (, Various conservation documents and conservation action plans (, Walpole Island First Nation is currently developing an ecosystem protection plan based on the community’s traditional ecological knowledge (, Mitigation, in response to Kentucky Coffee-tree removal at a subdivision developed in Ancaster, Ontario, involved the establishment of mixed-gender population(s) in Essex through strategic planting and site restoration (Pickett. 1994. This results in infrequent germination and probably accounts for the fact that the species is rare or uncommon throughout much of its extensive North American range (Yeiser 1983; Ball and Kisor 1985). Hebert, C.E., pers. 94 pp. This is a medium-growing tree that will reach a height of about 70 feet while spreading 45 to 60 feet. Styphnolobium japonica. Extant native populations in landscaped or agricultural settings have been maintained. This unique alphanumeric code is based on the methodology produced from the Breeding Bird Atlases of Canada. For copies of the recovery strategy, or for additional information on species at risk, including COSEWIC Status Reports, residence descriptions, action plans and other related recovery documents, please visit the Species at Risk (SAR) Public Registry. The state tree of Kentucky should be used more often because it is adaptable to many soils, Tobin (ed.) Lack of both sexes in most Ontario populations, and subsequent lack of reproduction by seed, is the likely factor explaining the historically restricted distribution in Ontario, where populations spread only locally through clonal reproduction (Ambrose 1983). Published online. In addition, female trees are sometimes known to produce empty seed pods, as appears to be the case for the Petrolia – Enniskillen Township population. Refer to section 7.1 for a description of how critical habitat within these areas is defined. Today, December 14, 20208 a.m. – 3 p.m. © 2020 Chicago Botanic Garden. Some occurrences on Walpole Island First Nation are known to be found near former Anishnaabeg homesteads (Jacobs pers. If feasible, plant ramets (or seedlings) from native sources at single-sex populations in natural settings with the intent of establishing mixed-gender populations. Water Operations Manager/Forester. 1994). maintain extant native populations within natural settings at their current abundance and distribution; augment extant single-sex native populations (. 2000. Single-sex populations currently occurring within natural settings (e.g., floodplain woodlands and woodland edges of marshes) will be augmented with both opposite-sex and same-sex individuals as these populations contain the suitable habitat necessary to allow for expansion of the population once sexual reproduction is achieved. A frequently-grown ornamental, the species is quite tolerant of urban, suburban and agricultural environments and thrives in areas that provide ample light. Kentucky Coffee-tree is listed as Threatened[4] on Schedule 1 of the federal Species at Risk Act (SARA). Kudzu (Pueraria montana var. vi + 11 pp. 5A species that lives in the wild in Ontario but is likely to become endangered if steps are not taken to address factors threatening to lead to its extinction or extirpation. Kentucky Coffee-tree is rare or uncommon throughout its Canadian range in southwestern Ontario, with an estimated total abundance of fewer than 500 genetically-distinct mature trees. These aggressive species have invaded many upland and floodplain habitats in southern Ontario, recently expanding to within the native range of Kentucky Coffee-tree in Canada (Pridham and Irvine 2008). In 2007, many Kentucky Coffee-trees on these islands (13 trees and approximately 500 saplings on Middle Island and 80 trees and >1,200 saplings on East Sister Island) were showing signs of stress including extensive damage to the surrounding vegetation (Jalava et al. 8Diameter at breast height (dbh) - a standard method of expressing the diameter of the trunk of a tree taken at 1.3 m above ground level. Researcher, recovery team member, Curator of the Sherwood Fox Arboretum, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario. Continue to develop and apply appropriate management practices to reduce Double-crested Cormorant impacts to levels that allow for the growth / maintenance of Kentucky Coffee-tree populations and other species at risk (. comm. Greenish-white flowers. and Dicerorhinus spp.) Deciduous woodland and woodland floodplain habitat as well as more open habitats such as tallgrass prairie and savannah, and moist habitats such as swamp, fen, bog and marsh are all considered suitable. comm. 29 pp. 2010) has noted that genetic diversity of Kentucky Coffee-tree is believed to be relatively low across its range in North America, so the introduction of non-native stock may not have as great an impact on the local gene pool as some fear. Natural Heritage Ecologist, Chatham Area Office, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, Chatham, Ontario. It bears greenish-white fragrant flowers in the spring but does not develop the dark brown seed pods that *COSEWIC = Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada. Walpole Island Heritage Centre, Environment Canada and The Walpole Island Recovery Team. All Canadians are invited to join in supporting and implementing this strategy for the benefit of the Kentucky Coffee-tree and Canadian society as a whole.

Often found associated with … Personal communications with J. Jalava, March 2011. Environment Canada. Gymnocladus dioica, commonly called Kentucky coffeetree or coffeetree, is a tall deciduous tree with rough, scaly gray-brown bark and large bipinnate compound leaves. Environment Canada, Canadian Wildlife Service – Ontario Region. Personal communication with Environment Canada. 2014. Kentucky Coffee-trees that exist in floodplains, on roadsides and/or part of a fencerow are particularly vulnerable to clearing while trees occurring as part of a forest stand are more vulnerable to canopy closure due to forest succession (COSEWIC 2000). Height: 60 - 100 feet. Given that the current primary regeneration strategy is by ramets, expansion of a population will occur within the vicinity of the ‘parent’ tree as ramets originate from existing roots. All rights reserved. The species is dioecious (individual flowers are either male or female, but only one sex is to be found on any one plant so both male and female plants must be grown if seed is required). Update COSEWIC status report on the Kentucky coffee-tree, Gymnocladus dioicus in Canada, in COSEWIC assessment and update status report on the Kentucky coffee-tree Gymnocladus dioica. Academic Press, San Diego, California. National Recovery Strategy for Carolinian Woodlands and Associated Species at Risk: Phase I. There appear to be four additional factors implicated in the rise of the cormorant population: In the Great Lakes, human-induced alterations to fish populations have created an imbalance in predator-prey dynamics and species composition resulting in conditions amenable to Double-crested Cormorant success. It is native to the Midwest, primarily southern Michigan and Ohio southwest to Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. Ecological importance of Native Americans culture to the Kentucky coffee-tree. University of Wisconsin Press, Madison. 21 pp. National Biological Service, Environmental Management Technical Center Report LTRMP 94-S011, Onalaska, Wis. 190 pp. The only known sexually-reproducing populations (shown in bold in Appendix C) are located at Canard River Floodplain – Anderdon Township, Population #1 - Walpole Island First Nation, Crawford’s Woods – Dover Township, East Sister Island – Lake Erie and Middle Sister Island – Lake Erie. A site must contain at least one living Kentucky Coffee-tree plant (which may include ramet, sapling or tree), and can include apparently dead individuals (based on visual observations), believed to be native in origin, and located in suitable habitat. Journal of Forestry 33:533-534. What it looks like. Maintenance or enhancement of open canopy conditions will not be beneficial to shade-tolerant and forest-interior species. At least 4 of the 15 extant populations within natural settings are mixed-gender and sexually-reproducing with an additional two populations that require confirmation of sexual-reproductive status. The species is also listed as threatened under the federal . comm. Success in the recovery of this species depends on the commitment and cooperation of many different constituencies that will be involved in implementing the directions set out in this strategy and will not be achieved by Environment Canada or the Parks Canada Agency, or any other jurisdiction alone. While roadside populations are at risk of eradication by right-of-way maintenance they likely include important genetic diversity in addition to that found in the very few sexually-reproducing populations. Kentucky coffeetree Fabaceae Gymnocladus dioicus (L.) K. Koch symbol: GYDI Leaf: Alternate, bipinnately compound, very large (1 to 3 feet long), with numerous 1 1/2 to 2 inch ovate leaflets, entire margins, green above, slightly paler below. 2006) has noted that seed dormancy can be broken by submerging the seeds in water and subjecting them to freeze and thaw cycles in early spring, after which seeds germinate well. International Plant Names Index. 3At high risk of extinction or elimination due to a very restricted range, very few populations, steep declines or other factors. 2007. 2006. The primary range of Kentucky Coffee-tree in the United States is from the southern Great Lakes region east to New York State, south to Oklahoma and Arkansas with scattered populations as far south as Texas and north to North Dakota (Figure 1). Member of Tallgrass Ontario and Carolinian Woodlands Recovery Team; coauthor of Recovery Strategy for Carolinian Woodlands. Hebert, C.E., J.A. 2011) noted that even minor canopy gaps in the forest caused by natural or human disturbance can be vegetatively colonized by Kentucky Coffee-tree, and that vegetative (i.e., clonal) growth through ramets is believed to be the species’ primary regeneration strategy. 2009. Korfanty, C., W. Miyasaki and J. L. Harcus. Population locations and extent of surrounding suitable habitat are required to delineate additional critical habitat. Personal communications with J.

Weseloh, E.M.T. Gymnocladus. It should be noted, however, that opening of the canopy can create the open conditions that favour the establishment of ramets of Kentucky Coffee-tree. Personal communications with K. St Laurent., January 2012. Lebedyk, D., pers. Some believe that this tree may, at least in part, have been brought into New York by Native Americans. Ambrose (pers. Mature trees grow 18 to 30 m tall (USDA 2007) and may live up to 100 years or more. Short Hills Conservation Action Plan. 2Severity: reflects the population-level effect (High: very large population-level effect, Moderate, Low, Unknown). As more information becomes available, additional critical habitat may be identified where sites meet the critical habitat criteria. The dramatic cormorant increase was probably augmented by a rise in the numbers of smaller fish (not native to the Great Lakes), such as Rainbow Smelt (Osmerus mordax) and Alewife (Alosa pseudoharengus), which serve as the species’ primary food source (Weseloh and Collier 2005). Peterborough, Ontario. Ambrose and N. S. May. It is recognized that the critical habitat identified below is insufficient to achieve the population and distribution objectives for the species.
