  • T700 - 898. Trend 1989-2007: +2.4% p.a. – Increase. However, trend in large African portion of range poorly known.
  • S8312 - Perennou et al. (1994) Tertickiy et al. (1999) estimated the population in the Yamalo-Nenetsky Autonomous Area at 90,000-350,000 individuals based on transect counts, but Lappo et al. (2012) considers this to be an overestimate.
  • T6312 - Nagy et al. (2014) shows increasing trend based on mid-winter count data, but it is unclear whether this is due to range shift or reflect genuine change. The latter woud contradict other available information reviewed by Delany et al. (2009).
  • T7117 - Increasing trend is apparent in mid-winter count data, but it is unclear whether this is due to range shift or reflect genuine change. The latter woud contradict other available information reviewed by Delany et al. (2009).
