Habitat Loss and Extinction in the Hotspots of Biodiversity
TLDR
The results suggest that the Eastern Arc and Coastal Forests of Tanzania-Kenya, Philippines, and Polynesia-Micronesia can least afford to lose more habitat and that, if current deforestation rates continue, the Caribbean, Tropical Andes, Philippines and Me- soamerica, Sundaland, Indo-Burma, Madagascar, and Choco-Darien-Western Ecuador will lose the most habitat in the near future.

Quantification of extinction risk: IUCN's system for classifying threatened species.
TLDR
The process and the technical background to the IUCN Red List system is described, which was designed to measure the symptoms of extinction risk, and uses 5 independent criteria relating to aspects of population loss and decline of range size. Expand
2000 IUCN red list of threatened species
TLDR
The 2000 Red List combines animals and plants into a single list containing assessments of more that 18,000 taxa and there has been a significant increase in the number of species assessments. Expand
A standard lexicon for biodiversity conservation: unified classifications of threats and actions.
TLDR
Almost all threats and actions could be assigned to the new classification systems, save for some cases lacking detailed information, which provided an improved way of analyzing and comparing information across projects when compared with earlier systems. Expand
The Status of the World's Land and Marine Mammals: Diversity, Threat, and Knowledge
TLDR
A comprehensive assessment of the conservation status and distribution of the world's mammals is presented, compiled by 1700+ experts, to suggest common mechanisms driving diversity and endemism across systems. Expand
Wildlife in a changing world : an analysis of the 2008 IUCN red list of threatened species
TLDR
Wildlife in a Changing World presents an analysis of the 2008 IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, and provides the latest information on the patterns of species facing extinction in some of the most important ecosystems in the world. Expand
The Impact of Conservation on the Status of the World’s Vertebrates
TLDR
Though the threat of extinction is increasing, overall declines would have been worse in the absence of conservation, and current conservation efforts remain insufficient to offset the main drivers of biodiversity loss in these groups. Expand
The conservation status of the world's reptiles
TLDR
The results provide the first analysis of the global conservation status and distribution patterns of reptiles and the threats affecting them, highlighting conservation priorities and knowledge gaps which need to be addressed urgently to ensure the continued survival of the world’s reptiles. Expand
Measuring Global Trends in the Status of Biodiversity: Red List Indices for Birds
TLDR
A method for producing indices based on the IUCN Red List to chart the overall threat status (projected relative extinction risk) of all the world's bird species from 1988 to 2004 is presented. Expand
