A species' risk of extinction is estimated by the deterioration state of the population.

Information of the Red Books Series of Threatened Species of Colombia —Libros rojos de especies amenazadas de Colombia— (reptiles, fresh water fish), is used in this paper for estimating the probability change of extintion risk upon changes in economic variables which show some kind of pressure for direct exploitation of habitat change. The quantitative tool for information analysis is a model of ordered discrete dependent variabl
