Effectiveness of the global protected area network in representing species diversity
It is shown that the global network of protected areas is far from complete, and the inadequacy of uniform—that is, ‘one size fits all’—conservation targets is demonstrated, in the first global gap analysis assessing the effectiveness ofprotected areas in representing species diversity.
Global Biodiversity Conservation Priorities
It is hoped this synthesis improves understanding of these prioritization approaches and that it results in more efficient allocation of geographically flexible conservation funding.
Canids : foxes, wolves, jackals and dogs : status survey and conservation action plan
The new Canid Action Plan synthesizes the current knowledge on the biology, ecology and status of all wild canid species, and outlines the conservation actions and projects needed to secure their
The Status of the World's Land and Marine Mammals: Diversity, Threat, and Knowledge
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.
The Impact of Conservation on the Status of the World’s Vertebrates
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.
The conservation status of the world's reptiles
The value of the IUCN Red List for conservation.
Global Gap Analysis: Priority Regions for Expanding the Global Protected-Area Network
Abstract Protected areas are the single most important conservation tool. The global protected-area network has grown substantially in recent decades, now occupying 11.5% of Earth's land surface, but
Global indicators of biological invasion: species numbers, biodiversity impact and policy responses
The results provide clear direction for bridging the current divide between information available on IAS and that needed for policy and management for the prevention and control of IAS, and highlight the need for measures to ensure that policy is effectively implemented, such that it translates into reduced IAS pressure and impact on biodiversity beyond 2010.
Threatened Amphibians of the World
Threatened Amphibians of the World is a visual journey through the first-ever comprehensive assessment of the conservation status of the world's 6,000 known species of frogs, toads, salamanders, and caecilians.
