For the second consecutive year, the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems has resulted finalist of the Eureka prize awarded by the Australian Museum, in the Environmental Research area. This time, however, it has been honored with the prize.
The IUCN Red List of Ecosystems continues growing internationally, this time in Asian territory. In recent communications between Chinese researchers and members of the RLE Team, China’s interest in applying the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems criteria was once again shown.
A new article about the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems has been recently published in the book "Valuing Nature: Protected Areas and Ecosystem Services". It is based on the presentations carried out during the Valuing Nature Symposium held on July 21st and 22nd, 2014 in Brisbane, Australia.
The special number of June of Austral Ecology dedicated to IUCN Red List of Ecosystems is already available
The June 2015 edition of the Austral Ecology journal was dedicated to the risk assessments with the application of the protocol of IUCN Red List of Ecosystems in environments of the world. The invited editor was researcher David Keith, who is coleaders, along with Jon Paul Rodriguez, the group thematic of the Red List of Ecosystems in the Commission on Ecosystem Management (CEM).
On January, 15th, 2015 Rodriguez and his collaborators presented a new contribution on the IUCN Red List of Ecosystem: the article “A practical Guide to the Application of the UICN Red List of Ecosystems Criteria” on the Philosophical Transaction of the Royal Society B journal. Such article is based on the version 2.0 of the Categories and Criteria of the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems, but contrary to the previous articles (Rodríguez et al. 2011, Keith et al. 2013), it was thought as a practical guide for those professionals who wish to broadly implement this risk evaluation protocol of ecosystems in terrestrial, maritime, fluvial and subterranean environments on sub-national, national or regional levels. In the article, the best practices for such evaluations were summarized which warrant methodological accuracy on the risk estimation, the process standardization, the decreasing of uncertainty and the comparison among ecosystems throughout time.
