A synopsis of evidence lists all the possible actions you could take to conserve a given species group or habitat, or to tackle a particular conservation issue.
For each action, it brings together the available scientific evidence with summary statements that are quick and easy to read. It describes each piece of evidence with references, and links to more information on our website.
Each synopsis is developed in partnership with an international advisory board of conservationists and researchers who specialise in that area.
For more information about the methods and evidence sources used for these synopses please see the methods page.
As well as those completed below, five global synopses are currently being produced on the conservation of carnivores, primates, forests, reptiles and mammals (herbivores). We are also working on conservation of biodiversity and ecosystem services in Mediterranean farmland and control of invasive plants.
