The Red List of Trees of Guatemala, draws on the knowledge of a wide range of experts and involved government and academic institutions in Guatemala as well as researchers overseas. It summarizes currently available information on tree species based on more detailed species profiles and makes a strong plea for conservation action. An immediate priority is to conserve the 10 Critically Endangered tree species that are found only in Guatemala, as part of the sustainable management of Guatemala’s rich forest resources.
