Threatened species in Switzerland, standing 2010

The Red List of threatened breeding birds was revised after ten years, following the guidelines of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). It replaces the list of threatened breeding birds in Switzerland published in 2001 by Keller et al., which was also established on the basis of the IUCN criteria. Of the 199 species assessed, the percentage considered threatened has remained stable at about 40 %. Almost a quarter of the species were reclassified.
