          Abstract

          In this contribution, the conservation status assessment of two vascular plants according to IUCN categories and criteria is presented. It includes the regional assessment of Jasione orbiculata Griseb. ex Velen. for Italy and of Vachellia gerrardii (Benth.) P.J.H.Hurter subsp. negevensis (Zohary) Ragup., Seigler, Ebinger & Maslin for Iraq.

          Supporting Red List threat assessments with GeoCAT: geospatial conservation assessment tool

          Abstract GeoCAT is an open source, browser based tool that performs rapid geospatial analysis to ease the process of Red Listing taxa. Developed to utilise spatially referenced primary occurrence data, the analysis focuses on two aspects of the geographic range of a taxon: the extent of occurrence (EOO) and the area of occupancy (AOO). These metrics form part of the IUCN Red List categories and criteria and have often proved challenging to obtain in an accurate, consistent and repeatable way. Within a familiar Google Maps environment, GeoCAT users can quickly and easily combine data from multiple sources such as GBIF, Flickr and Scratchpads as well as user generated occurrence data. Analysis is done with the click of a button and is visualised instantly, providing an indication of the Red List threat rating, subject to meeting the full requirements of the criteria. Outputs including the results, data and parameters used for analysis are stored in a GeoCAT file that can be easily reloaded or shared with collaborators. GeoCAT is a first step toward automating the data handling process of Red List assessing and provides a valuable hub from which further developments and enhancements can be spawned.

              New combinations in Vachellia and Senegalia (Leguminosae: Mimosoideae) for south and west Asia

              Fragmentation of the former broadly circumscribed genus Acacia necessitates new names in Vachellia (syn. former Acacia subg. Acacia) and Senegalia (syn. Acacia subg. Aculeiferum) for the following 21 taxa that are recorded for the south and west Asian regions (i.e. Bangladesh west to the Arabian Peninsula). Senegalia diadenia, Senegalia donaldii, Senegalia hohenackeri, Senegalia lankaensis, Senegalia lenticularis and Senegalia mahrana. Vachellia gerrardii subsp. negevensis, Vachellia gerrardii subsp. negevensis var. najdensis, Vachellia hunteri, Vachellia harala, Vachellia hydaspica, Vachellia jacquemontii, Vachellia johnwoodii, Vachellia nilotica subsp. cupressiformis, Vachellia nilotica subsp. hemispherica, Vachellia planifrons, Vachellia pseudoeburnea, Vachellia tanjorensis , Vachellia tortilis subsp. campoptila, Vachellia wightii (syn. Acacia bolei) and Vachellia yemenensis. There are two unresolved names for the west Asian region: Acacia pachyceras and Acacia yemenensis subsp. obtusifoliolata.
