endangered species

endangered species \en*dan"gered spe"cies\, n. sing. & pl. A species of plant or animal that has declined in numbers to a point where further irreversible decline and extinction[3] has a significant chance. Lists of endangered species are maintained by government agencies, and in many cases the killing of such species or destruction of their habitat is prohibited by law.

Note: In the U. S. in recent years, development of certain tracts of land has been prohibited due to the likelihood that it will cause a reduction in the numbers of an endangered species. In some cases environmental organizations have initiated litigation to cause the courts to rule that a certain development plan is illegal due to a threat to an endangered species. Laws protecting endangered species have become in some cases a contentious political issue.

endangered species

n. A species which is in danger of becoming extinct.

endangered species

n. a species whose numbers are so small that the species is at risk of extinction

Endangered Species (Flaw album)

Endangered Species is the second studio album by Flaw. It was released on May 4, 2004. The album debuted at #42 on the Billboard 200 chart.

As explained by vocalist Chris Volz, the fairly lengthy delay between the release of Through the Eyes and Endangered Species was the result of 18 months of touring and, sequentially, the band's desire to not hastily release an album without being happy with its contents. This album marked a change in the band's sound, completely eliminating rapping from their signature style.

After the band's breakup, pre-production demos for majority of the songs on the album, in addition to 7 unreleased tracks, were made available on the internet. They were quickly taken offline after Universal had words with the webmaster of the site that had illegally distributed the tracks. The webmaster was allowed by the band to put the tracks online, but he did not have the legal rights to do so from Universal. The differences between the demo and final versions are mostly lyrical, though "Medicate" has entirely different lyrics and a different riff in the bridge.

The album spawned one single, "Recognize", which failed to receive significant radio airplay, but charted higher than any other Flaw single.

Endangered Species (Klaatu album)

Endangered Species is the fourth and penultimate album by the Canadian progressive rock band Klaatu, released in mid-1980. The music on the album was a stark contrast from any other Klaatu album, as it featured only standard, radio-friendly pop rock songs, as opposed to the usual unconventional, ambitious progressive and psychedelic rock sound they were known for. The band had virtually no artistic control over the music on the record; it was more a project of Capitol Records. To quote the Official Klaatu Website's FAQ (by Dave Bradley):

"An outside producer was brought in, most of the instruments were played by Los Angeles based session musicians, and the band members were asked to add their voices and (usually) one lead instrument per song. The band was sent home before the album was even mixed."

To add to this, the session musicians overdubbed most of the very few recorded parts by the band. In a question and answer session with fans, John Woloschuk, bass player of Klaatu, explained that all of Dee Long's lead guitar parts were overdubbed by Chris Bond, with the only exception being Long's guitar solo on "Sell Out, Sell Out."

The stylistic difference between this album and the rest of Klaatu's work was immediately apparent. The band evidently resented this, as one track on the album ("Sell Out, Sell Out") was a searing attack on Capitol's attempts to "jump on the bandwagon." As it turned out, Capitol's attempts to turn the band into a more conventional and radio-friendly pop/ rock band were completely in vain since the album was a commercial and critical failure. As a result, the band was dropped shortly afterwards by Capitol, though Capitol's Canadian division picked up the band and released their final album Magentalane in Canada only.

The following tracks were recorded but not included on the final album:

  • There's Something Happening (Dee Long)
  • Inflation Blues (Dee Long)
  • C'mon Dance With Me (Dee Long)
  • All Over Morocco (Terry Draper)
  • Tribute to Walt Disney (John Woloschuk)
  • I'll Miss You (John Woloschuk)
  • List of Endangered Species (John Woloschuk and Dino Tome) - later re-recorded and released as "Blue Smoke" on the band's final studio album " Magentalane".

Regular Klaatu artist Ted Jones - who had not painted the cover for the group's previous album, Sir Army Suit - returned to paint the album cover.

Endangered Species (Big Pun album)

Endangered Species is a posthumous compilation of unreleased tracks, guest appearances, and greatest hits by the late rapper Big Pun, released in 2001 following his death in February 2000. The proceeds from the album were to be given to Pun's widow, Liza Rios, and their three children. The album reached a peak chart position of #7. Liza Rios claims to have only received a small royalty check from the sales of Endangered Species, and in response, auctioned off her husband's Terror Squad medallion in July 2005.

The single from the album was " How We Roll", which featured at time, R&B newcomer Ashanti on the chorus & outro. The video to the song was made into a cartoon and helped remember Big Pun throughout. Fellow rapper and close friend Fat Joe, who was also the compilation's executive producer, revealed in the liner notes of the album that the title chosen for the compilation was in fact the original title for 2000's Yeeeah Baby. All of Pun's lyrics were included in the booklet of the disc, partly due to the limited amount of promotional tools available to the label, and partly because of a desire to emphasize Pun's technique as a lyricist.

In 2012, the IUCN Red List featured 3079 animal and 2655 plant species as endangered (EN) worldwide. The figures for 1998 were, respectively, 1102 and 1197.

Many nations have laws that protect conservation-reliant species: for example, forbidding hunting, restricting land development or creating preserves. Population numbers, trends and species' conservation status can be found in the lists of organisms by population.

Endangered Species (Des'ree album)

Endangered Species: A Compilation Of Rare And Obscure Tracks is a 2000 compilation album by British singer-songwriter Des'ree. As suggested by its title, it is not a greatest hits compilation, but a collection of assorted b-side only tracks, songs from soundtracks, and live versions of her hits from her first three albums.

The selection features five b-sides from her different singles (with "Warm Hands, Cold Heart", a b-side to " You Gotta Be" being a new mix specially done for the compilation), five live songs, an acoustic mix, the song "Silent Hero" which was recorded for the 1995 film Clockers, and one then-unreleased song, "Soul Mates".

It is Des'ree's only compilation to date. Des'ree was taking time off from music at the time to study at the Camberwell College of Arts and therefore did not promote the album, which did not chart.
