Checklist of CITES species and annotated CITES Appendices and reservations
1. In July 2003 the CITES Secretariat and the UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) published the Checklist of CITES species and annotated CITES Appendices and reservations, in the three working languages of the Convention. This single publication replaces the 2001 editions and now includes a CD-ROM where the information is available in PDF format.
2. The Checklist of CITES species section provides the official alphabetical list of CITES species, their scientific synonyms, their common names in English, French and Spanish (to the extent that these were available to the compilers) and an indication of the Appendix in which they are listed.
3. The Annotated CITES Appendices and reservations section provides information on all taxa currently or previously included in the CITES Appendices. The original listing date is given for all taxa (orders, families, genera, species, subspecies) and populations specifically named in the current Appendices, or in earlier versions of the Appendices. All reservations made by Parties are listed, with the dates on which they entered into force and, in the case of past reservations, the dates on which they were withdrawn.
4. Common names in the three languages have been included in the Checklist to the extent possible. Nevertheless, the publishers are aware that many common names in French and Spanish are missing. The Secretariat would very much value the assistance of the Parties in filling the gaps so that future editions are as complete as possible.
5. Copies of this publication have been sent free of charge to the Management Authorities of the Parties directly from UNEP-WCMC.
6. Additional copies are available from the IUCN Publications Services Unit for USD 60 plus postage, either through the CITES website or by contacting them at:
