Least Concern
A LEAST CONCERN (LC) species is a species which has been categorized by the International Union for Conservation of Nature
International Union for Conservation of Nature
(IUCN) as evaluated but not qualified for any other category. As such they do not qualify as threatened , near threatened , or (before 2001) conservation dependent . Species
Species
cannot be assigned the Least Concern category unless they have had their population status evaluated. That is, adequate information is needed to make a direct, or indirect, assessment of its risk of extinction based on its distribution or population status. Since 2001 the category has had the abbreviation "LC", following the IUCN 2001 Categories -webkit-column-width: 30em; column-width: 30em; list-style-type: decimal;"> * ^ "2001 Categories ">(PDF).

Protista
A PROTIST (/ˈproʊtᵻst/ ) is any eukaryotic organism that is not an animal , plant or fungus . The protists do not form a natural group, or clade , but are often grouped together for convenience, like algae or invertebrates . In some systems of biological classification , such as the popular five-kingdom scheme proposed by Robert Whittaker in 1969, the protists make up a kingdom called PROTISTA, composed of "organisms which are unicellular or unicellular-colonial and which form no tissues." Besides their relatively simple levels of organization, protists do not necessarily have much in common. When used, the term “protists” is now considered to mean similar-appearing but diverse taxa that are not related through an exclusive common ancestor, and have different life cycles , trophic levels , modes of locomotion , and cellular structures

List Of Chromista By Conservation Status
As of July 2016, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has evaluated the conservation status of 15 species within Chromista . The IUCN has not evaluated any protist species other than those in Chromista. No Chromista subspecies or subpopulations have been evaluated. No evaluated Chromista species are confirmed to be extinct , but four are tagged as possibly extinct. This is a complete list of Chromista evaluated by the IUCN

Lower Risk
An animal with the conservation status of LOWER RISK is one with populations levels high enough to ensure its survival. Animals with this status do not qualify as being threatened or extinct, however, natural disasters or certain human activities would cause them to change to either of these classifications. This classification is sub-divided into three types: * Conservation dependent - where cessation of current conservation measures could result in it being classified at a higher risk level. * Near threatened - close to becoming vulnerable but not meeting the criteria. * Least concern
Least concern
- where neither of the two above apply.SEE ALSO * Biodiversity action plan * Endangered species
Endangered species

Philautus
See text PHILAUTUS is a genus of SHRUB FROGS in the family Rhacophoridae from Asia. Some species in this genus are now considered extinct by IUCN
IUCN
, while others are widespread and abundant (such as the recently described P. abundus, which was specifically named for this fact). The taxonomy of the group is unclear, with many poorly described species . This genus is unique in that development not direct, with all growth inside the egg and no free-swimming tadpole stage. Some species have been found to bury their eggs in soil, although they are arboreal, and others attach their eggs to leaves.

International Union For Conservation Of Nature
The INTERNATIONAL UNION FOR CONSERVATION OF NATURE (IUCN), officially INTERNATIONAL UNION FOR CONSERVATION OF NATURE AND NATURAL RESOURCES is an international organization working in the field of nature conservation and sustainable use of natural resources . It is involved in data gathering and analysis, research, field projects, advocacy, and education. IUCN's mission is to "influence, encourage and assist societies throughout the world to conserve nature and to ensure that any use of natural resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable." Over the past decades, IUCN has widened its focus beyond conservation ecology and now incorporates issues related to sustainable development in its projects. Unlike many other international environmental organisations, IUCN does not itself aim to mobilize the public in support of nature conservation

Undescribed Species
In taxonomy , an UNDESCRIBED TAXON is a taxon (for example, a species ) that has been discovered, but not yet formally described and named. The various Nomenclature Codes specify the requirements for a new taxon to be validly described and named. Until such a description has been published, the taxon has no formal or official name, although a temporary, informal name is often used. A published scientific name may not fulfil the requirements of the Codes for various reasons. For example, if the taxon was not adequately described , its name is called a nomen nudum . It is possible for a taxon to be "undescribed" for an extensive period of time, even if unofficial descriptions are published. An undescribed species may be referred to with the genus name, followed by "sp"., but this abbreviation is also used to label specimens or images that are too incomplete to be identified at the species level . In some cases, there is more than one undescribed species in a genus

Taxon
In biology , a TAXON (plural TAXA; back-formation from taxonomy ) is a group of one or more populations of an organism or organisms seen by taxonomists to form a unit. Although neither is required, a taxon is usually known by a particular name and given a particular ranking , especially if and when it is accepted or becomes established. It is not uncommon, however, for taxonomists to remain at odds over what belongs to a taxon and the criteria used for inclusion. If a taxon is given a formal scientific name , its use is then governed by one of the nomenclature codes specifying which scientific name is correct for a particular grouping
