Table 13 : Number of endangered, endemic species for seven species groups

The table is based on a study carried out by the World Conservation Monitoring Centre of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP-WCMC) for FRA 2000 (FAO 2001). The study examined the presence and threatened status (whether the species were considered globally endangered) for seven species groups: amphibians, birds, ferns, mammals, palms, reptiles and trees. The threatened status was derived from the World Conservation Union (IUCN) lists of threatened species.

The total number of species (sum of the seven groups) present in each country is given in the first column, and the number thereof that are considered endangered in the second.

Of the total number of threatened species, the number of country-endemic species are then reported in the third column.

Finally, the last seven columns list how many of the endangered and country-endemic species occur in forests, for each species group.
