Note: These taxa pages are a work-in-progress. The fact that particular taxa cannot be found on our hierarchial taxa lists does not mean that the organisms are not inhabiting the park. Your help in identifying these missing taxa, and then presenting science-based proposals and funding for inventorying these hidden, yet intrinsically valuable life forms is much appreciated by the DLIA staff and Board of Directors, as well as the Park's Inventory and Monitoring personnel.
