Conservation Amazon diadema

• Current IUCN Red List category: Endangered.

• Demographic trend: Degressive.

Justification for the Red List category Based on a model for future  deforestation  in the

Amazon basin and susceptibility to this new species captured, it is suspected that its population will undergo a very rapid over three generations of descent in 2002, so it is in danger of extinction Rationale for the trend It is expected that this species will lose between 49 and a 55% of suitable habitat in its distribution in three generations (37 years) from 2002, based on a model of deforestation of the Amazon (Soares-Filho and at the ). Given its susceptibility to capture, it is suspected that species will decline by 50-79% during this time.
