Release of the 2000 pink checklist is a tremendous landmark for IUCN. it's the first time that listings of animals and crops were mixed and the 1st time that the purple record has been produced on CD-ROM. The 2000 crimson record combines new assessments‹including all chook species, many antelope and bat species, so much primates and sharks, all Asian freshwater turtles, extra molluscs, and plenty of others‹with these from earlier courses. the mix of animals and crops right into a unmarried checklist containing tests of greater than 18,000 taxa (11,000 of that are threatened species) and the circulation in the direction of enhanced documentation of every species at the record implies that a hard-copy model of the pink checklist might run to numerous volumes. This, mixed with the truth that the pink record might be up to date each year, resulted in the choice to liberate the pink checklist in digital structure, through the area huge net and as a CD-ROM.

E. the species were inherently very rare). It is possible that the number of bird species at risk from intrinsic factors has been under-recorded, and this might be clarified as documentation becomes more comprehensive. Other threats Of the remaining threats in Figure 9, natural disasters have some impact as do land and water pollution. But as these are largely episodic events rather than ongoing factors, they are unlikely to affect large numbers of threatened species, as their impact will in most cases be limited both in space and time.
Therefore it is alarming to note that 30% of threatened birds are currently being affected by invasive species. 28 Red List 2000 06 September 2000 16:14:55 Color profile: Generic CMYK printer profile Composite Default screen Analysis Habitat loss/Degradation Direct loss/Exploitation Indirect loss Alien invasive species Natural disaster Atmospheric pollution Land/Water pollution Birds Mammals Plants Intrinsic factors 0 20 40 60 80 Percentage of threatened species Direct loss/exploitation Habitat loss/degradation Figure 9.
