The European Red List is a review of the conservation status of ca. 6,000 European species (dragonflies, butterflies, freshwater fishes, reptiles, amphibians, mammals and selected groups of beetles, molluscs, and vascular plants) according to the IUCN regional Red Listing guidelines. It identifies species that are threatened by extinction at the regional level – so that appropriate conservation action can be taken to improve their status. This Red List publication summarises the results concerning the European dragonflies.
