Red listing e-learning modules
BGCI has created a suite of e-learning modules on red list assessments of trees. There are four modules in this series which together offer an introduction to tree red listing for anyone interested in getting involved with red listing of tree species.
- Module 1: An introduction to red list assessments of trees
- Module 2: Information gathering and mapping
- Module 3: Assigning an IUCN red list conservation status for trees (coming soon)
- Module 4: Conservation assessments - what next? (coming soon)
This module covers the Global Tree Assessment, why we should red list the world's trees, who can carry out the red list assessments and some practical information to consider before starting to red list.
This modules covers the information required to red list a tree, how to create a map of your chosen species and range estimate calculations.
This module covers the IUCN Red List categories and criteria, how these are applied to tree assessments and uses examples to illustrate how the categories and criteria work in practice.
This module covers potential uses for red list assessments. This includes prioritisation of conservation action, monitoring of conservation action, facilitating education and public awareness of conservation issues, supporting and providing information for international conservation policy and influencing funding allocations.
BGCI would like to thank the Convention on Biological Diversity and The Japan Biodiversity Fund for supporting the development of these learning modules.
