All 1200 species now threatened with global extinction are covered. The threats to each species are described, with an evaluation of conservation measures so far and targets for the future. Each entry includes an illustration and identification information, a distribution map, and detailed information on range, population and recent records. Appendices include descriptions of lower-risk species, an annotated list of extinct species, and a country-by-country listing of threatened birds.
