Note that the category codes changed when the IUCN Red List categories and criteria were revised in
2001 (IUCN 2001). Codes applying to one assessment only are indicated in the following list: EX =
Extinct; EW = Extinct in the Wild; CR = Critically Endangered; CR (PE) = Critically Endangered (Possibly
Extinct); EN = Endangered; VU = Vulnerable; NT = Near Threatened (2004); LC = Least Concern
(2004); LR/nt = Lower Risk: near threatened (2000); LR/lc = Lower Risk: least concern (2000); LR/cd =
Lower Risk: conservation dependent (2000); DD = Data Deficient; NE = Not Evaluated; NR = Not
Recognised (a category used by BirdLife in order to record full Red List history for taxonomically
different lists). See www.birdlife.org for definitions of the Reason for change codes.
