Causes for biodiversity loss are complex and solutions require involving multiple groups, from governments to civil society. Yet without reliable, timely information on the status and trends of biodiversity, there is little hope of stemming the extinction crisis. Effective action hinges upon both rapid and consistent monitoring of the status of wild plant and animal species and measuring impacts of human activities. During this project, IUCN will produce a European Red List of Hoverflies, a species group that plays a key role in pollination and pest control. These new assessments, using IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria, will supplement the existing European Red Lists, providing a detailed picture of the status of biodiversity in Europe.

IUCN will produce a European Red List of Hoverflies, a species group that plays a key role in pollination and pest control. Developing a Red List for this species group will provide an overview of the status of Hoverfly species in Europe, identify the main threats to them and make recommendations for further research and conservation action needed. The compilation of spatial data for the range maps will also highlight areas of high endemism, or of particularly high concentration of threatened species. Finally, it will also contribute to increasing the coverage of invertebrates in the European Red List. These new assessments, using IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria, will supplement the existing European Red Lists, providing a detailed picture of the status of biodiversity in Europe.
