Summary
Abstract: In collaboration with scientists from around the world, CREO has developed
standardized criteria for analyzing extinctions that can be applied across
diverse taxonomic groups. We are now in the process of organizing an effort to
collect extinction data and analyze them against these criteria so that an
accurate and comprehensive survey of recent extinctions can be produced. This
research program will result in a comprehensive database of extinction
information; and the data gathered from this effort can be used in a number of
important conservation applications. (Source: CREO, AMNH)
