This paper provides a comprehensive hierarchy of key ecological attributes and stresses to match the IUCN standard threats classification.
This classification may help with describing and understanding both the natural and the impaired functionality of biodiversity targets, as well as assist with the development of appropriate conservation strategies. It is an excellent academic paper but may be too detailed for many real-world applications
