About this book

The listings present the findings and conclusions of all species of mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles, fishes, as well as selected groups of insects, mollusks and vascular plants, etc. All have been assigned status according to the newly defined red listing categories developed by IUCN. Detailed description maps of Species are included showing all point records held in the rather comprehensive CSIS database managed by the Biodiversity Working Group of China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development based in the Institute of Zoology of Chinese Academy of Sciences.
