About this book

Language: English

Sri Lanka is regarded as a biodiversity hotspot. The National Red List 2012 of Sri Lanka evaluates all flowering plants, ferns, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and major groups of invertebrates, including various insect groups, in the country. It includes the present status of dry zones, lowland wet zones, montane forests, fresh water aquatic flora, mangroves and the family Orchidaceae. The lists provide provisional checklist of various faunal species. The nomenclature of the fauna is based on the latest published literature available. The research work has involved expert committees for different fauna groups, and data compilation and preparation of maps and draft evaluations carried out by the Species Conservation Unit and presented to individual expert groups for final evaluation.
