Endangered Species -- Encyclopedia Britannica

Chicago, Illinois - United States

Endangered species, any species of plant, animal, or other organism that is at risk of extinction because of a sudden rapid decrease in its population or a loss of its critical habitat. Previously, any species of plant or animal that was threatened with extinction could be called an endangered species. The need for separate definitions of endangered and threatened species resulted in the development of various categorization systems, each containing definitions and criteria by which a species can be classified according to its risk of extinction.
