Threat and Demographic status
A species' conservation status consists of two components: the status of threats to the species and the species' demographic status. Neither component alone is sufficient for evaluating "how a species is doing"; both must be considered. Defenders of Wildlife has developed a simple method for scoring the threat and demographic status of imperiled species (Malcom et al. 2015), which we illustrate here. Note that the data shown are not real data.
