Assessing risks to marine ecosystems with the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems

Researchers conducted the first IUCN-RLE assessment of an offshore marine ecosystem and listed the southern Benguela of South Africa as Endangered.

Assessing ecosystem collapse risk of fringe mangroves in ecosystems dominated by foundation species

This study investigates the robustness and adequacy of the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems (RLE)’s approach when performing risk assessments using a fringe mangrove ecosystem as a case study, as well as the identification of ecosystems which are more vulnerable to global environmental change.

Defining the appropriate spatial scale for robust estimates of risks to species and ecosystems

IUCN scientists demonstrate that estimates of the Area of Occupancy (AOO) at scales proportional to the spatial extent of the threats are robust predictors of risks to biodiversity.

Selecting indicators for ecosystem risk assessments

Scientists develop a guide for selecting indicators for ecosystem risk assessments.
