The taxonomy, distribution, or natural history of comatulid crinoids (featherstars) in Vanuatu.

Excel file with multiple worksheets and graphs summarising the status and threats to IUNC red-listed flora and fauna in the Solomon Islands. Accessed from IUCN red list October 2018.
Large numbers of birds, including more than 68 000 wild-caught and reportedly captive-bred CITES-listed individuals, were imported from the Solomon Islands in the 2000s. The vast majority were imported by Malaysia and Singapore and often re-exported, particularly in the case of Singapore. In terms of species composition, there were a few species native to the Solomon Islands, however the majority (77%) were non-native species from Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. 13 736 individuals of these non-native species were exported as “captive-bred”.
