Jordan Plant Red List: Volume1 Published

An IUCN ROWA member has announced the publication of the Jordan Plant Red List, Volume 1 this November. 


Since there is a lot of data deficiency for the flora of Jordan and the region, theThe Royal Botanic Garden (RBG) decided to work with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) on an action plan strategy to fill in the missing information and update the threat levels for all indigenous species. 

Jordan Plant Red List, Vol.1, is an extensive work of the RBG since 2011, in conjunction with IUCN and experts from Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and the University of Birmingham, who are partnering with the RBG in an EU funded project. 

The first volume includes 1072 species of vascular plants that have been evaluated according to the criteria and categories of the IUCN, Version 3.1.
