    Aldrovanda vesiculosa Red Listed by IUCN

    As announced on the ICPS Forum due to the research by Adam Cross Aldrovanda vesiculosa has been Red Listed as an Endangered Species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

    http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/162346/0

    Justification:

    From 379 natural historical populations distributed throughout 124 regions in 43 countries, this species has declined over the last century to only 50 confirmed extant locations. Two thirds of these are however found in one region within Poland and the Ukraine, with the remaining 18 sites thinly spread across four continents. The species has been confirmed extinct in Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Bangladesh, India, Japan, Uzbekistan and East Timor, and remains unverified in another 21 countries. The likelihood of persistence in many of these areas is slim due to extensive wetland degradation, and it is undeniable that this species faces a potentially severe outlook if attempts to mediate the species decline are not swiftly made.
    IUCN is one of the sources that CITES uses as a criteria for Endangered and Threatened Species so listing of this species on CITES Appendix I is probable.


    More information on the IUCN can be found on their website http://www.iucn.org/

    Congratulations Adam Cross! The efforts of just a few people can make a difference.

    IUCN listing would not affect interstate trade on these puppies, would it? it should only affect international.

    If the species gets listed as Endangered in CITES Appendix I then International movement becomes regulated. The Endangered Species Act regulates endangered species within the United States. CITES Appendix I listed species more or less get added to the ESA list automatically but there will be a listing date.

    But since this is not a plant found within the united states i don't think it can be listed under the ESA.
