IUCN Red Lists

The IUCN Spider & Scorpion Specialist Group is promoting the assessment of extinction risk of arachnid species worldwide. All assessments follow the IUCN redlisting criteria and use numerous tools to facilitate the process. Our workshops intend to: 1) allow the participants to get first-hand knowledge on the criteria and guidelines; 2) present the online Species Information System and provide guidance on how to use it; 3) tutor on mapping standards, including an introduction on Species Distribution Modelling; 4) teach on alternative tools such as using R and the red package for assessments and publication of Species Conservation Profiles at the Biodiversity Data Journal.
