EFFECTS ON ASH-FEEDING INVERTEBRATES
We identify 98 Fraxinus-dependent invertebrate herbivores (or inquilines) as potentially threatened by the spread of EAB, 45 of which are reported here for the first time
(Figs. 13-20). Because our compilation of Fraxinus
feeders was a bottom-up tabulation for all insects and mites, built upon the collective knowledge of more than 80 taxonomic experts, we feel the data in Table 4 offer a unique look at the taxonomic distribution of ash-specialist herbivores from the estimated 70,000 species of North American insects (Arnett, 2000) and Acari (mites).

"Special Animals” is a broad term used to refer to all the animal taxa tracked by the Department of Fish and Wildlife’s California Natural Diversity Database (CNDDB), regardless of their legal or protection status. This list is also referred to as the list of “species at risk” or “special status species”. The Special Animals list includes species, subspecies, or Evolutionarily Significant Units (ESU) where at least one of the following conditions applies:
