New-Caledonia Plants Red List: overview October 2017 and Municipalities restitution

Endemia has been mobilizing for the last 3 years a group of experts (the Red List Authority) in order to assess the extinction risk of the New Caledonia flora. The team established in February 2017 an overview of the work carried since 2015. To date, 1100 species (out of the 3,400 known species) have been treated, 42% of which were assessed are threatened. The 33 municipalities of New Caledonia all shelter an original and threatened floristic heritage. On the occasion of this synthesis, Endemia shares with 15 first municipalities the list of endangered species present on their territory and a simplified map.
