The Regulatory Life of Threatened Species Lists 23 For conservation scientists, the species is the foundational ontological unit through which life can be calculated and known (Braverman 2015c; Sandler 2012). Biermann and Mansfield reflect on the perspective of conservation experts that: “Managing individual nonhuman lives is meaningless in responding to the crisis of biodiversity loss; individual lives acquire meaning only when they advance the long-term well being of the broader population or are essential to sustaining key biological processes, especially evolution” (2014, 264).

The Regulatory List The Red List is especially powerful for its simplicity and comprehensiveness: “you want a category system that at the end of the day is relatively simple to implement,” Hoffmann explains in our interview. The simplicity factor is intimately related to the aforementioned heightened comparability that the Red List affords. Generally, the assumption is that the simpler the categories and criteria, the more they can be applied across the board to regulate the various taxa on the list.

The IUCN Red List assesses the status of species at a global level because this is the scale at which extinction occurs,” explain Mace and other prominent architects of 24 Irus Braverman the Red List (Mace et al. 2008, 1437). Lists are not only a way of channeling communication flows; they also “do the global” in their work as boundary objects that operate across time and space in an attempt at universal standardization. The Red List “does the global” in a number of ways. First, it produces simple and visible links between otherwise loosely connected species, geographies, temporalities, and risks.
