H OW TO USE THESE WORKSHEETS The Worksheets for Steps 1-9 are intended to assist Scientific Authorities to document the basis for a non-detriment finding and the information sources used. Each Worksheet is designed to provide a record of responses to the Key Questions for each of the nine Steps outlined in the companion document CITES Non-Detriment Findings: Guidance for Perennial Plants .

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
