Threats to the survival of the running buffalo clover include habitat destruction, competition from nonnative plants, the absence of a rhizobial symbiote, disease, and predation.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources has reached an agreement with a landowner to protect one of the two known populations of running buffalo clover.
Recovery criteria to protect the running buffalo clover include protecting occupied habitat and populations, inventorying known populations, surveying for additional populations, determining and implementing habitat management techniques, augmenting existing populations and establishing new ones, conserving genetic diversity, and providing public information.
Indiana Department of Natural Resources: The Department has continued surveys for new populations and has collected material for cultivation at the Missouri Botanical Garden and ultimate planting at Versailles State Park.
The Nature Conservancy: The Conservancy's contact with property owners resulted in an agreement that protects one population of the plant.
Plan approved 6/8/89.
