Example text

When the first and second editions of the Red Book of Venezuelan Fauna were published, no extinct amphibians had been reported, and seven were listed as threatened. Currently, 26 Venezuelan amphibians are threatened and one is extinct. , 2008; Blaustein and Wake, 1990). While it is possible that groups other than amphibians may have also declined in conservation status, the growth of the RLVF is probably due to a significant expansion of the data available. On the one hand, all species in five major taxonomic groups – mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and freshwater fishes – were assessed, contrasting with the selective assessments of the past.

2000). Temporal changes in the number of species listed The 2008 RLVF includes 748 species: 4 regionally or globally extinct (EX, ER), 198 threatened (CR, EN, VU), 138 NT, and 408 DD (Rodr´ıguez and Rojas-Su´arez, 2008). ), 102 threatened, 69 NT, 101 DD and 92 in other categories (Rodr´ıguez and Rojas-Su´arez, 1999). 1): (i) generalized decline in the conservation status of species; (ii) increase in the number of species assessed; and (iii) improvement in knowledge about species in general or threatened species in particular.
