Honey bees?[edit]

I wonder if that isn't an out-dated reference because since 2007, with colony collapse disorder, I think honey bees are no longer in the least-concern category. (They are not on the wikipedia list for least concern). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alisar (talkcontribs) 12:11, 30 July 2012 (UTC)


i think so.. because there are BILLIONS of us and compare to least rated there are just a bit less then 8000. shouldn't we be on this...?

According to the human page, we're not rated. (talk) 23:32, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

There really ought to be a "Kill on sight" category for things such as Kudzu and Spanish Moss (and maybe even Dandelions :)) JH443 (talk) 04:19, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

First sentence[edit]

"Least Concern (LC) is an IUCN category assigned to extant species or lower taxa which have been evaluated but do not qualify for any other category."

Isn't this kind of redundant? I mean, you could say that about ALL living things on earth. (Except for humans, apparently.) (talk) 04:48, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

Least concernLeast-concern species – "Least concern" is too vague/ambiguous. Near-threatened species is a related article with a title similar to that proposed. (talk) 11:13, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

On the list or not[edit]

The last paragraph starts: While "least concern" is not considered a red listed category by the IUCN, the 2006 IUCN Red List still assigns the category to 15636 taxa I find this impossible to interpret. In my reading it means the species is both on the list and not on the list. Could someone please rephrase or expand this so that it is more clear what LC means? --Ettrig (talk) 10:55, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
