Key to maps

reddot.png(red dots) core records, known to represent existing locations of focal taxa; in the case of intra-continental migrants, only records approximating the taxon’s breeding distribution are used.

orangedot(orange dots) non-core records, representing vagrant occurrences of the focal taxon obviously outside its usual range, or historical observations of a taxon known to be extinct at that location.

greydot(grey dots) records of other subspecies of the same species as the focal taxon; or in the case of intra-continental migrants, non-breeding records of the focal taxon not included as core records.

blueploy(blue polygons) minimum convex polygons underlying the locational records on the maps that depict each existing taxon’s Extent of Occurrence (EOO).

yellowpoly

(yellow polygons) areas formerly occupied by Extinct taxa.

 

redarrow(red arrows) the location of taxa with very small distributionsand known seabird breeding locations.

Maps were made using the Geoscience Australia Lambert Conformal Conic (GALCC) projection.

Neophema chrysogaster

Psittacidae

Population type  

Endemic Australian taxon

IUCN Red List Status 2010  

Critically Endangered A2abc+3bc+4abc, B1ab(i,ii,iii,iv,v), C1+2a(i,ii), D, E

Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act Status  

Critically Endangered

Reason if Threatened or Near Threatened  

Very small, rapidly declining population in one small area, models suggest extinction within 10 years so decline in the wild being accelerated by capturing some juveniles to ensure genetic diversity of captive population

IUCN Red List Status 2000  

Critically Endangered C2a(ii)

Reason if changed in 2010  

Severe declines detected

IUCN Red List Status 1990  

Critically Endangered C2a(ii)

Reason if changed in 2000  

No change

Current Eligibility against IUCN Red List Criteria  

.

IUCN Category

Criteria Eligibility

A

Critically Endangered - population decline of more than 80% is currently being observed in AOO

B

Critically Endangered - EOO less than 100 km², 1 location with plausible future threat, observed continuing decline in EOO, AOO, no. locations, no. subpopulations, no. mature individuals

C

Critically Endangered - population less than 250 mature individuals, estimated continuing decline greater than 25% in 1 generation, less than 50 mature individuals in 1 subpopulation

D

Critically Endangered - population less than 50 mature individuals

E

Critically Endangered - population viability analysis suggests greater than 50% chance of extinction in the wild in the next 3 generations (12 years)
