ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The IUCN is considered the oldest global conservation organization. Its best-known product is the Red List, a compendium of species threatened with extinction. The union is holding one of its four-yearly meetings in Barcelona, Spain in 2008. On the meeting's agenda is the release of the latest version of the Red List, which the IUCN has been keeping since 1963, and which covers nearly 45,000 species. The IUCN has also authored an assessment of mammals that looks for larger patterns. The union is also predicting which species will one day become threatened as a result of climate change.
