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.

The figure below is a snapshot of a widget for displaying threat and demographic status information. When browsing this plan on the web, a dynamic version available.
