Figure 2a indicates that as in 1996, Indonesia (135 species) still has by far the highest number of threatened mammals of any country in the world. India (80 species) and Brazil (75 species) have now both moved ahead of China (72 species). While lower down the list there are some major changes with Thailand (32 species) and the USA (29 species) being displaced from the top twenty by Cameroon (38 species) and the Russian Federation (35 species). Tanzania (38 species) has also moved up from 20th to 14th position.

Holds almost 75% of all threatened birds (BirdLife International 2000). This allows conservation planners to target resources in those areas where the extinction risk to birds, and therefore often the threat to the wider environment, is greatest. For example, in Brazil while it is evident that much of Amazonia is important, it is the coastal region where the Atlantic forest occurs which is of prime conservation importance and this applies equally to both birds and mammals, especially the primates (Rylands et al.

This has more than doubled the number of species on the Red List, as all 7,388 species (includes species in all categories from Data Deficient to Extinct) listed in The World List of Threatened Trees (Oldfield et al. 1998) have been included. As these tree assessments were all done relatively recently there was no need for any reassessments, but some changes were made in the light of new information and the SSC Conifer Specialist Group in their preparation of an Action Plan, reassessed many of the conifers (Farjon and Page 1999).
