In13 species were under Pr, 3 were threatened A3 under extinction risk Pand 3 under rare R, but this category is no longer in use in the NOM ; in21 species were under Pr, 4 under A, and 3 under P; finally in16 species were under Pr, 7 under A, and 6 under P. Contando a las subespecies es posible distinguir un total de 61 taxa. Many of these agencies work under the Semarnat agenda the higher-level agency and part of the executive government ; however, internal agendas, lack of communication between agencies, and the frequent political and electoral uses of governmental programs within the Federal Government in Mexico limits conservation efforts and the allocation of financial resources for conservation Mathews, ; Possingham et al.
The world’s most endangered tortoises and freshwater turtles.
The lack of concordance between the lists issued by the Mexican Government and those issued by international NGO’s and specialist groups such as the IUCN Tortoise and Freshwater Turtle Specialist Group is based on the disarticulation of the Mexican public administration, from the data available to the decision-making process.
Ochoa-Ochoa and Flores-Villela used a 0. Several anonymous reviewers made relevant comments on early versions of this manuscript. Jones for his stimulating comments on early drafts and to John L. Recently, Ochoa-Ochoa, Campbell, and Flores-Villela tested for different scales in diversity and endemism for the herpetofauna of Mexico, and suggested that fine scales allow recognition of more precise biogeographic patterns.
The turtles of Mexico.
Since the Red List is not a regulatory apparatus, local lists such NOM should be strengthened empowered to become a comprehensive, systematic assessment that could interact with its counterparts, such as the Endangered Species Act in the case of the shared fauna between Mexico and the U.
Discussion Conservaciom lack of concordance between the lists issued by the Mexican Government and those issued by international NGO’s and specialist groups such xe the IUCN Tortoise and Freshwater Turtle Specialist Group is based on the disarticulation of the Mexican public administration, from the data available to the decision-making process. A comparative analysis of status assessments of polar bear, Ursus marinus. Among all of these lists, potential good primqck coverage should be predicted for Mexican turtles; however, there are some inquiries that should be made in order to know more about Mexican non-marine turtles’ conservation status.
It is also hard to tell if the difficult work has been done by the international agencies or by Mexican agencies? The Conabio List of Priority Species Conabio, is another list issued by the Mexican government and is based upon a closed workshop of specialists from the federal government, academia, national non-governmental organizations NGOsinternational NGOs such as cknservacion IUCN, and private consultants non-academics, but experts on conservation biology.
Certainly both succeed and fail, but the confusion generated by the lack of concordance makes conservation conservvacion difficult. We explored the overlap of conservation status between Mexican and international agencies by comparing listing status. The conservation status of the world’s reptiles.
Social Studies of Science. Most of the time, conservation, taxonomic, and distributional data updates reach the people in charge of updating the lists and the decision makers with considerable delay.
More research and data are needed on Kinosternon oaxacaeK. The conservation of non-marine turtles in Mexico should be carefully revised and revisited.
Its challenges and contexts. The conservation status of several endemic kinosternid species.
Conocimiento actual de la biodiversidad. Distribution and status of Creaser’s mud turtle, Kinosternon creaseri.
Introducción a la biología de la conservación
One consequence of these issues is threatened species and their associated conservation problems are attached to the jurisdictional and legal administration within countries, states, municipalities, counties, districts, etc. This species has much the same conservation problems as the Mexican tortoises; however, it has been omitted in Conabio’s list of priority species.
Hexagons represent our sample unit. The continental turtle fauna of Mexico is composed of 7 families, 13 genera, and 45 species; when subspecies are included, a total of 61 distinct taxa are recognized.
Chelonian Conservation and Biology. We are aware that this approach could obscure disjunct distributions Terborgh and Winter, and overestimate real distribution areas i. Smithsonian Institution Press; This area is quite similar to quadrants of 0. We decided to use only those records in order to follow what Mexican authorities should do for the protection of imperiled species in accord with the law currently.
Vague definitions of some risk categories such as ‘threatened’ A ,’endangered’ P’under special protection’ Prand the difference in the primary function of the assessment lists and their association with local laws Harris coservacion al. Finally, we thank J.
