Red List Learning Modules

These are a set of four e-learning modules on red list assessments of trees. These modules offer an introduction to tree red listing for anyone interested in getting involved with red listing of tree species.

These modules are also available in French, Spanish and Chinese.

Module 1: An introduction to red list assessments of tree

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.

Module 2: Information gathering and mapping

This modules covers the information required to red list a tree, how to create a map of your chosen species and range estimate calculations.

Module 3: Assigning an IUCN red list conservation status for trees

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.

Module 4: Conservation assessments – what next?

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.
