Usage notes

  • Most parameter values are obtainable from the block labeled "Citation:" at the bottom of the targeted IUCN Red List page. The citation shown will provide, from left to right, the |assessors=, |year= and |title= (the binomial species name) parameters.
  • Note that |year= is not necessarily 2012, but is instead the "year published", i.e., the most recent year in which the species has been assessed.
  • The |id= parameter can be obtained from the url of the target page at www.iucnredlist.org, where it is found between a pair of forward slashes ("/"); e.g., use |id=14144 from the url www.iucnredlist.org/details/14144/0.
  • An optional |ref= parameter is supported but seldom used. It allows specification of reference names in Harvard references, for use in the {{citation}} template family (not to be confused with the {{cite}} template family). For example, use of |ref={{harvid}} or |ref={{sfnref}} templates enables subsequent use of short-format templates like {{sfn}}.
