Notes

  • S8461 - Usually less than a hundred counted during IWC in the Caspian. However, Solokha (2006) reported 3,114 individuals in 2004 and 334 in 2005. Nevertheless, the estimate of O'Donnell & Fjeldsa seem to be too high and a new estimate of category A, i.e. <10,000 seems to be more supported by data.
  • T6459 - Count totals are decreasing in the Caspian (Wetlands International, unpublished IWC data).
  • S8901 - See CSR6 and Sheldon (2017)
