Notes

  • S8308 - See Delany et al. 2009. Tertickiy et al. (1999) estimated the population in the Yamalo-Nenetsky Autonomous Area at 900,000-1,900,000 individuals. Lappo et al. (2012) considers this to be an overestimate.
  • T7114 - Both the long- and the short-term trends are uncertain, but TRIM assessed the long-term trend as stable.
  • S9403 - The size of the breeding population is estimated at 200,000-400,000 pairs, or 600,000-1,200,000 individuals after rounding in West Siberia based on data from the period of 1997-2007.
