Sensitivity analysis to determine thresholds for Least Concern for each parameter: number of specimens, number of TDWG regions, extent of occurrence and area of occupancy. Vertical dashed line shows the chosen threshold (also reported in Table 1). We used 923 randomly selected monocot species from the Sampled Red List Index for Plants Project (Brummitt et al. 2015) as the validation dataset. For each species, we compared the published Red List assessments with those predicted by Rapid Least Concern over a continuum of threshold values and reported accuracy measures based on a confusion matrix.
