About This Project

This site is based on "The Red Book of Israeli Plants - Threatened Plants in Israel" by Prof. Avi Shmida, Dr. Gadi Pollack and Dr. Ori Fragman-Sapir, and on "The Israeli Red List of Threatened Breeding Aves". The site is designed to provide easy access to information on these species. This site is under active development, and more data will be added in the near future.

English translation by Dr. Esther (Cookie) Lachman for plant entries is in progress and is currently available only for a portion of the plants.
