Notes

  • S1249 - 653 made new compilation of data from West Africa after survey of previously unknown sites in Guinea, and propose increase in 604 estimate from 740,000 to 1,300,000. 676 accept modification of this treatment.
  • S8592 - Only 348,079 individuals in the 2010s (van Roomen et al., 2014). This represents much lower numbers than the earlier estimates reviewed by Delany et al. (2009). Rounded and raised to an estimate of 350,000-450,000 because of large uncertainties in several countries.
  • T6585 - Based on mid-winter counts, large decrease both in the long- and in the short-term (1979-2014 and 2003-2014, respectively) according to van Roomen et al. (2014). Significant long-term decline.
  • T7145 - Significant long-term decline.
