In accordance with Article XI, paragraph 5 of the Convention text, the amendments to the Appendices agreed at COP11 have now entered into force.
Revised versions of the Appendices have been posted on the CMS website in English. French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese and Russian are being prepared and will be posted as soon as they become available.
The species added to the Appendices at COP11 are set out in the attached table.
In addition to the species added by COP11, the revised Appendices also take into account changes in the taxonomy and nomenclature of already listed species consequent to the adoption by COP11 through Resolution 11.19 of a new standard reference for non-Passerine bird species. The sequence of some taxa was also re-ordered according to the relevant standard reference.
