Abstract: This paper provides a comparison among threatened categories of 141 Chinese coniferous taxa listed by Temperate Tree (WCMC), World List of Threatened Conifer Taxa (CSG) and China Plant Red Data Book (Vol.1). The results show that the categories of some taxa provided by three units are essentially different, because of insufficient data obtained and different criteria of categories accorded. Consequently, the categories of some Chinese conifers were analysed in accordance with the Draft IUCN Red List Categories (Version 2.3, 1994).
