Threatened Species
Threatened Species are any species (including animals, plants, fungi, etc.) which are vulnerable to endangerment in the near future. Species that are threatened are sometimes characterised by the population dynamics measure of critical depensation, a mathematical measure of biomass related to population growth rate. This quantitative metric is one method of evaluating the degree of endangerment.[citation needed][1] Under the Endangered Species Act in the United States, "threatened" is defined as "any species which is likely to become an endangered species within the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of its range".[11] It is the less protected of the two protected categories

The grey-headed swamphen is one of 15 species inGrey-headed swamphen (Porphyrio poliocephalus) is a species of swamphen occurring from the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent to southern China and northern Thailand.

State wildlife biologists attempted to eradicate the birds, but they have multiplied and can now be found in many areas of southern Florida
