Browsing through a species group

Depending on your selection, you can have a family or genus displayed.

You have a number of filter options: a. all, ticked or non-ticked (Default all); b. Geographical areas (default All) and c. checklist to be used (default as per your personal settings - Clements 6.7 for birds and GT 2.0 for non-birds). If you have modified the options, you need to click on "Set Filter" to activate.

* Column 1 gives sequence # based on the checklist that has been filtered
* Column 2 has a green tick marker if you have ticked the taxa
* Column 3 shows the IUCN codes (click on the code and you will be linked to IUCN species info site)

By clicking on on the menu line on any of these 3 columns (and column 5 and 6, see below), it will sort ascendingly or descendingly. You restore to the default sequence by clicking on column 1 until you have sequence #1 at the top.

* Column 4 has a Show/Hide marker for polytypic species (i.e. a species with multiple subspecies) - click on to show the underlying taxa; click again to hide. If you have expanded a number of polytypic species, you can hide them all by clicking on the species group itself.

* Column 5 (English name), column 6 (Scientific name) and, if you have the language option other than English, column 7 (Domestic name) are self-explanatory. The English and scientific names are from the checklist that has been filtered (in this case Clements 6.7). The domestic names come from various sources and translations.

* Column 8 has markers for species or subspecies with photos ( links to Photo Gallery) and those which lack photos ( links to Photo Upload page).

You can set the value on how many entries you want to display at a time. Also, you have a Search field with a predictive search function (starts after you have typed two letters) which is handy when browsing through big species groups like e.g. hummingbirds.

Finally, you will be redirected to the info page of the species which is highlighted in yellow by clicking on it.

1 Lion
Panthera leo
Lions are found in most countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The lion formerly ranged from northern Africa through southwest Asia (where it disappeared from most countries within the last 150 years), west into Europe, where it apparently became extinct almost 2,000 years ago, and east into India. Today, the only remainder of this once widespread population is a single isolated population of the Asiatic lion P. leo persica in the 1,400 km² Gir Forest National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary. Lions are extinct in North Africa, having perhaps survived in the High Atlas Mountains up to the 1940s (IUCN). Possibly extinct: Gabon. Regionally extinct: Afghanistan; Algeria; Djibouti; Egypt; Eritrea; Gambia; Iran; Iraq; Israel; Jordan; Kuwait; Lebanon; Lesotho; Libya; Mauritania; Morocco; Pakistan; Saudi Arabia; Sierra Leone; Syria; Tunisia; Turkey; Western Sahara
2     African Lion
    Panthera leo leo
Subsaharan Africa
3     Asiatic Lion
    Panthera leo persica
The range of the lion in North Africa and South-West Asia formerly stretched across the coastal forests of northern Africa and from northern Greece across south-west Asia to eastern India. Today the only living representatives of the lions once found throughout much of South-West Asia occur in India's Gir Forest but there are now also some groups outside Gir Forest - Girnar, coastal subpopulation, Bali Tana subpopulation. (IUCN)
4 Jaguar
Panthera onca
Historically it ranged from the southwestern US (where there are still some vagrants close to the Mexican border) through the Amazon basin to the Rio Negro in Argentina. The Jaguar has been virtually eliminated from much of the drier northern parts of its range, as well as northern Brazil, the pampas scrub grasslands of Argentina and throughout Uruguay. (IUCN)
5 Leopard
Panthera pardus
The leopard occurs across most of sub-Saharan Africa, as remnant populations in North Africa, and then in the Arabian peninsula and Sinai/Judean Desert (Egypt/Israel/Jordan), south-western and eastern Turkey, and through Southwest Asia and the Caucasus into the Himalayan foothills, India, China and the Russian Far East, as well as on the islands of Java and Sri Lanka. Regionally extinct: Hong Kong; Kuwait; Libyan Arab Jamahiriya; Singapore; Syrian Arab Republic; Tunisia; Presence uncertain: Iraq; Kazakhstan; Korea, Republic of; Lebanon; Lesotho; Mauritania
    Panthera pardus fusca
Indian subcontinent
7     Sri Lankan Leopard
    Panthera pardus kotiya
Sri Lanka
8     Javan Leopard
    Panthera pardus melas
Indonesia (Java). Population (1992): 350-700. Critically endangered.
9     Arabian Leopard
    Panthera pardus nimr
A 2006 Arabian Fauna Conservation Workshop estimated there were fewer than 200 leopards remaining on the Arabian peninsula, in three confirmed separate subpopulations: the Negev desert, the Wada'a mountains of Yemen, and the Dhofar mountains of Oman. Presence in Saudi Arabia is uncertain (IUCN)
10     Amur Leopard
    Panthera pardus orientalis
The Amur leopard is a very rare subspecies, with a 2007 census counting only 14-20 adults and 5-6 cubs in the southwestern Primorye region of Russia. The Amur leopard is extinct in China and the Korean Peninsula.
11     African Leopard
    Panthera pardus pardus
In sub-Saharan Africa, leopards remain widely, albeit now patchily, distributed within historical limits. It is estimated that leopards have disappeared from at least 36.7% of their historical range in Africa. The most marked range loss has been in the Sahel belt, as well as in Nigeria and South Africa. They have been locally extirpated from areas densely populated with people or where habitat conversion is extreme. They are likely extinct on Zanzibar, where there have been no confirmed records since 1996. In North Africa, a tiny relict population persists in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, and there was a probable observation on the Morocco-Algerian border in Figuig in 2007, while a population was recently found in the Ahaggar of south-eastern Algeria, a region from which they had not previously been recorded. Leopard are likely extinct in Egypt, although they may occur in the Eastern Desert.
12     Persian Leopard
    Panthera pardus saxicolor
The most recent crude national population estimates are: 550-850 in Iran; 200-300 (?) in Afghanistan; 78-90 in Turkmenistan; <10-13 in Armenia; <10-13 in Azerbaijan; 3-4 in Nagorno-Karabakh; <5 in Georgia; < 10 in Russian North Caucasus; < 5 in Turkey
13 Tiger
Panthera tigris
The tiger once ranged widely across Asia, from Turkey in the west to the eastern coast of Russia. Over the past 100 years tigers have disappeared from southwest and central Asia, from two Indonesian islands (Java and Bali) and from large areas of Southeast and Eastern Asia. Tigers have lost 93% of their historic range.
14     Amur Tiger
    Panthera tigris altaica
Completely confined to the Amur-Ussuri region of Primorsky Krai and Khabarovsk Krai in far eastern Siberia.
15     South China Tiger
    Panthera tigris amoyensis
Today the estimated population of the South Chinese subspecies is 20-30 individuals found only in the Chinese provinces of Guangdong, Fujian, Hunan, Jiangxi, and Zhejiang.
16     Bali Tiger
    Panthera tigris balica
Indonesia (Bali). Became extinct at the end of World War II.
17     Indochinese Tiger
    Panthera tigris corbetti
The Indochinese tiger occurs in Myanmar, Thailand, Lao PDR, Viet Nam and Cambodia.
18     Malayan Tiger
    Panthera tigris jacksoni
Peninsular Malaysia. The geographic division between P. t. jacksoni and P. t. corbetti is unclear as tiger populations in northern Malaysia are contiguous with those in southern Thailand.
19     Javan Tiger
    Panthera tigris sondaica
Indonesia (Java). The Javan Tiger likely became extinct in the mid-1970s.
20     Sumatran Tiger
    Panthera tigris sumatrae
Sumatra (Indonesia)
21     Bengal Tiger
    Panthera tigris tigris
It occurs in India, Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh.
22     Caspian Tiger
    Panthera tigris virgata
Extinct. Caspian Tigers were found in the sparse forest habitats and riverine corridors west (Turkey) and south (Iran) of the Caspian Sea and west through Central Asia into the Takla Makan desert of Xinjiang, China. The last Caspian tiger was seen in the early 1970s, and there are none in captivity.
23 Snow Leopard
Panthera uncia
The snow leopard is restricted to the high mountains of Central Asia, with core areas including the Altai, Tian Shan, Kun Lun, Pamir, Hindu Kush, Karakorum and Himalayan ranges. Afghanistan; Bhutan; China (Gansu, Nei Mongol - Presence Uncertain, Qinghai, Sichuan, Tibet [or Xizang], Xinjiang, Yunnan - Regionally Extinct); India (Himachal Pradesh, Jammu-Kashmir, Sikkim, Uttaranchal); Kazakhstan; Kyrgyzstan; Mongolia; Nepal; Pakistan; Russian Federation; Tajikistan; Uzbekistan
