Red List of Threatened Species and Ecosystems

The conservation of biodiversity is an important basis for maintaining critical ecosystem services. Understanding the risk of species extinction and ecosystem collapse would make important contribution to improving conservation actions alleviating the crisis of biodiversity loss. Red List of Threatened Species (RLTS) established by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) provides information about range, population size, habitat and ecology, use and/or trade, threats, and conservation actions for threatened species. While Red List of Ecosystems (RLE), as a new thinking behind the assessment of global health and sustainability of nature, aims to develop a global standard for ecosystems status assessment, which could be applicable at local, national, regional, and global scales. Both red lists are regarded as robust tool of biodiversity examination for conservation.

This special issue focuses on the latest progress on theories, criteria, and implementation of RLTS/RLE (e.g., gaps in existing RLTS/RLE protocol, ecosystem typologies for RLE assessment, criteria and case study on specific species or ecosystems, threshold examination of ecosystem collapse, modeling of species extinction ecosystem risk). The guest editors of this Special Issue entitled “Red List of Threatened Species and Ecosystems” would like to invite colleagues worldwide to submit manuscripts that contribute to current discourses on this topic to help overcome current research gaps in both of global and regional assessments of Red List of Threatened Species and Ecosystems.
