British Red Data Books: 3. Invertebrates other than insects 1991


This Red Data Book covers the diverse invertebrate groups other than insects, and is a companion volume to British Red Data Books: 2. Insects, published in 1987.

The bulk of the book consists of data sheets, each dealing with an individual species, in the standard format of Red Data Books pioneered by IUCN. Each species dealt with is placed in a threat category reflecting how serious is the risk of its disappearing from the British fauna.

Please note that this Red Data Book was first published in 1991, therefore more recent information may be available. To find more up-to-date information on the conservation status of species, please visit our conservation designations webpage.
