schematic overview of the tax­o­nomic Tree of Life of the rel­e­vant Fam­ily, mainly based on the Cat­a­logue of Life, includ­ing the species’ con­ser­va­tion sta­tus accord­ing the IUCN Red List of Threat­ened Species. Links are pro­vided to ARKIVE for images of the species and some back­ground infor­ma­tion. When an ARKIVE web­page is not avail­able there will be a link to EOL (the Ency­clo­pe­dia of Life). Where appro­pri­ate and avail­able the species name links to a ded­i­cated web­page with detailed descrip­tion of the endan­gered species’ biol­ogy, habi­tat, pop­u­la­tion size, con­ser­va­tion sta­tus, threats, cap­tive breed­ing pro­grammes and more.
