IUCN SSC Red List Authority Coordinator: Luis Oakley

With more than 19,800 species of plants under the scope of the IUCN SSC Temperate South American Plant Specialist Group (TSAPSG), and considering that the strategic plan for SSC indicates that the assessment of plants needs to be substantially enlarged to represent adequately the diversity of life, we are focusing our efforts to assess: (1) endemic species, whose vulnerability is more likely because their restricted distribution, (2) wild harvested species, which are currently under a variety of pressure of uses and (3) trees, because of their cultural and economic importance.
