It is understood that the Red List is a measure of the extinction or threat level of species, and an important basis for the protection of rare and endangered species. The Jiangsu Provincial Department of Ecology and Environment compiled the above-mentioned list for the first time on the basis of the background survey of the biodiversity in the county areas of the province, including 20 species at level I and 64 species at level II.
