The effects of climate change on biodiversity are increasingly well documented, and many methods have been developed to assess species' vulnerability to climatic changes, both ongoing and. Human arrival and alteration of native systems brought novel pathogens and disease to the islands, leading to population decline and species loss (keppel et al, 2014 meyer 2014) since the animals are more vulnerable to infection, the anthropological activities may increase the incidence of diseases in wild species, leading to their extinction. Amphibians in decline updated saturday 5th january 2008 the world's amphibians are in crisis populations of most of the world's 6200 species of frogs, toads, salamanders, newts and caecilians are in decline and one in three amphibian species are threatened with extinction.

Iucn classifies this species as near threatened populations, especially in the northern part of the emperor penguin's range, are expected to decline within the next few generations as a result of projected climate change. Deforestation, civil wars and hunting have put giraffes on the vulnerable species list now we must show these creatures the other side of human nature. Endangered species categories and criteria species populations are loosely grouped into six major categories the four categories of endangered species are vulnerable, endangered, critically endangered, and extinct in the wild.

Vulnerable species a vulnerable species is one which has been categorized by the international union for conservation of nature as likely to become endangered unless the circumstances that are threatening its survival and reproduction improve. Which species are most vulnerable to extinction before a species becomes extinct, it must first be rare some species are naturally rare, while others have that rarity imposed upon them by one or more of the factors discussed above.
Where species are most vulnerable instead of focusing strictly on numbers, the group at nabci created a “conservation vulnerability assessment”—the first of its kind—for all 1,154 native north american bird species. The major causes of biodiversity decline are land use changes, pollution, changes in atmospheric co 2 concentrations, changes in the nitrogen cycle and acid rain, climate alterations, and the introduction of exotic species, all coincident to human population growth for rainforests, the primary factor is land conversion. For all species together, the study found a dramatic decline with the estimated total population reduced by 421 million individual birds between 1980 and 2009 (ecol lett (2015) 18, 28–36) declines were generally more pronounced in the first half of this period than in the second. Population and population size (criteria a, c and d) the term 'population' is used in a specific sense in the red list criteria that is different to its common biological usage population is here defined as the total number of individuals of the taxon.
This species is listed as vulnerable because of a population decline, estimated to be more than 30% over the last 18 years (three generations), inferred from shrinkage in distribution through habitat destruction and degradation, as well as over-exploitation (for both local use and wildlife trade. Human population growth is another underlying factor of wild chimpanzee vulnerability with population growth rates increasing, food production miserably inadequate, and political and economic insecurity a fact of life, africans are struggling to meet short-term needs at the expense of chimpanzees (butynski 2001. The iucn’s vulnerable status means a species is still vulnerable to extinction, and the snow leopard population is still believed to be in decline and facing a high risk of extinction. Destruction of the habitat of a particular wildlife species intentionally or unintentionally leads to extinction of species the habitat may be destroyed by deforestation, drainage, overgrazing, expanding agriculture, urban and suburban development, highway construction, dam building, etc.

Australia's most at-risk populations of koalas (phascolarctos cinereus)— those in queensland, new south wales and the australian capital territory are protected under national environment lawthe federal environment minister listed australia's most at risk koala populations in april 2012 as vulnerable under national environment law. Javan rhino rhinoceros sondaicus in-situ population: 67 animals iucn red list classification: critically endangered with an estimated 67 animals left in a single population in ujung kulon national park, the javan rhino is extremely vulnerable to natural disasters and disease.
The decline in proboscis monkey populations is directly attributed to the expansion of aquaculture projects in mangrove areas and the conversion of riparian habitats to agriculture land and human. Science bird populations in steep decline in north 450 breeding species as vulnerable, with some populations expected to be halved in a matter of decades driver of long-term decline in. Shark populations around the world are in rapid decline sharks grow relatively slowly, take many years to mature and produce relatively few young these characteristics make sharks, like this porbeagle, particularly vulnerable to over-exploitation.
