Mangrove species are uniquely adapted to tropical and subtropical coasts, and although relatively low in number of species, mangrove forests provide at least US $1.6 billion each year in ecosystemExpand
The Impact of Conservation on the Status of the World’s Vertebrates
Assessing Biodiversity Declines Understanding human impact on biodiversity depends on sound quantitative projection. Pereira et al. (p. 1496, published online 26 October) review quantitativeExpand
One-Third of Reef-Building Corals Face Elevated Extinction Risk from Climate Change and Local Impacts
The conservation status of 845 zooxanthellate reef-building coral species was assessed by using International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List Criteria. Of the 704 species that could beExpand
Extinction risk assessment of the world’s seagrass species
Seagrasses, a functional group of marine flowering plants rooted in the world’s coastal oceans, support marine food webs and provide essential habitat for many coastal species, playing a criticalExpand
The cost of being valuable: predictors of extinction risk in marine invertebrates exploited as luxury seafood
Extinction risk has been linked to biological and anthropogenic variables. Prediction of extinction risk in valuable fauna may not follow mainstream drivers when species are exploited forExpand
Overview of the conservation status of the marine fishes of the Mediterranean Sea
This report reviews the conservation status of all native marine fishes occurring in the Mediterranean Sea, based on the assessments for 513 species and 6 subspecies using the IUCN’s Red ListExpand
Shortfalls and Solutions for Meeting National and Global Conservation Area Targets
