The 2005 Red List of Swedish Species is an account of animal, plant and fungi species whose populations in Sweden are considered not to be viable in a long-term perspective. The assessments are based on the IUCN Red List Criteria. The 2005 Red List is the result of a two-year project in which the Swedish Species Information Centre and its 15 Expert Committees have analysed the situation of 20,000 species. The Red List includes 3,653 species, 1,664 of which are classified as threatened. A separate table presents all species that are protected or appear on the global Red List, in international conventions or in EU legislation.
