  Conservation status - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The conservation status of a species is an indicator of the likelihood of that species continuing to survive.
Many factors are taken into account when assessing the conservation status of a species: not simply the number remaining, but the overall increase or decrease in the population over time, breeding success rates, known threats, and so on.

 NatureServe Conservation Status
The conservation status of a species or community is designated by a number from 1 to 5, preceded by a letter reflecting the appropriate geographic scale of the assessment (G = Global), N = National, and S = Subnational).
The overall status of a species or ecological community is regarded as its "global" status; this range-wide assessment of condition is referred to as its global conservation status rank (G-rank).
Conservation status refers to the aggregating transient population of the species in the nation or state/province.

Conservation efforts on bears must be based on accurate biological information and knowledge of the habitat requirements of the species.
Conservation of bears requires human intervention in the competitive interaction between man and bear to assure resource availability for both species to the exclusion of neither.
Local participation in the conservation of bears is now the limiting factor to the success of grizzly populations in the conterminous United States and most certainly for most all bear populations.

The term "species of conservation concern" includes species that are rare, disjunct, or at risk throughout their range or in Manitoba and in need of further research.
Species are evaluated and ranked by the Conservation Data Centre on the basis of their range-wide (global - G) status, and their province-wide (subnational - S) status according to a standardized procedure used by all Conservation Data Centres and Natural Heritage Programs.
Although the Manitoba Conservation Data Centre maintains high standards of data quality control, it makes no warranty as to the fitness of the information for any purpose, or that the information is necessarily accurate or complete.

Although woodpecker population estimates on the island are large enough to provide nesting sites for parrots, competition for holes with other secondary cavity nesters such as toucans, flycatchers and tytiras, and the selective cutting of dead trees for canoe construction, which is a common practice on the island, may limit hole availability for parrots.

Jacobsen (and myself) in 1995.
While this research originally focused on seep- and spring-inhabiting stoneflies of the Appalachian Plateaus, Ridge and Valley, and Blue Ridge Physiographic Provinces, a much wider variety of habitats were sampled in years 1994-1999 ranging from seeps and springs to trout streams to large rivers throughout Allegany, Frederick, Garrett, and Washington Counties.
Overall, the purpose of this report is to provide information on the status of all stoneflies known to occur in the Appalachian region of western Maryland.

The World Conservation Union (formerly the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources and still referred to as "IUCN") establishes criteria for determining the conservation status of species or other taxonomic groups and maintains the Red List (http://www.redlist.org/).
For purposes of categorization, the entire species is listed under the most severe status among its subgroups.
If no conservation status is noted, the species still may be under the watchful eye of the IUCN, but data are not sufficient to determine whether there is a concern.

This group reached consensus that a three level hierarchical model that first looked at the intersection of biological value and conservation status, next at utility and finally at PI data was appropriate.
Because this model places emphasis on intact units for their potential to protect "ecosystem-level" values, for the purpose of evaluating which units are "intact," the snapshot conservation status ranking should be used rather than the conservation status modified by dynamic threat.
