 2006 IUCN Red List – Frequently Asked Questions
While the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species is designed to combine both animal and plant assessments in one list, including all species assessed for the World List of Threatened Trees, many of the plant taxa previously assessed for the 1997 IUCN Red List of Threatened Plants are not included on this Red List.
In such cases, the Red List assessments are not directly comparable because although the taxon may have the same name, the circumscription of the taxon may be different.
The Red List is being developed to identify reasons for change in status for all species on the list, and at some time in the future it should be possible to highlight genuine changes only.
