This report presents an updated global analysis using a more recent data set with improved representation of species monitored in areas generally classified as tropical. Using the Living Planet Index (LPI) method (Loh et al. 2005; Collen et al. 2009a; McRae et al. 2017), a global measure of biological diversity that is being used to track progress towards the Aichi Biodiversity Targets (SCBD 2010). The LPI tracks trends in abundance of a large number of populations of vertebrate species in much the same way that a stock market index tracks the value of a set of shares or a retail price index tracks the cost of a basket of consumer goods.
