This allows conservation planners to target resources in those areas where the extinction risk to birds, and therefore often the threat to the wider environment, is greatest.

With small sample sizes also pose statistical problems as they have very few • Countries discrete values and the data may not be usable for analyses that require the dependent variable to be continuous. Although the usefulness of measuring the number and proportion of threatened species in a country is limited in statistical analyses, when combined they can provide a useful indication of high diversity areas that have disproportionately more threatened species. This section focuses primarily on mammals and birds, as they are the only two groups to have been comprehensively assessed.
