Table S3
List of vertebrate families assessed. Number of species, traded species and proportion of traded species per family.
Table S5
Predicted future traded species. Probability of a species being traded in the future based on body size, evolutionary distinctiveness, phylogenetic relatedness, and the proportion of species traded in respective families. All species that have above 50% probability of future trade for at least one assessment technique are provided.
Table S7
Summary of trade across global biogeographical regions. Proportion of traded species is relative to the total number of species in a region. Proportion of pet- or product-traded species is relative to the total number of traded species in a region. Note that some species can be traded as both pets and products. Realms classification follows Holt et al. (41), and biomes classification follows Olson et al. (40).
Table S10
Complete list of traded vertebrates (birds, mammals, amphibians and squamate reptiles). Trade types are indicates as NA or products and/or pets.
