[Excerpt] This species is listed as Critically Endangered in view of its extent of occurrence (EOO) estimated to be c. 12 km2, its existence at a single location and an observed and projected continuing decline in AOO, EOO and the number of mature individuals caused by wood extraction for small timber. [::Common Name(s)] [::]English - Voronov's Pear [::Taxonomic Notes] Pyrus voronovii Rubtzov was described by Rubtsova in 1941 from surroundings of the village Tashtun (Megri, Armenia).
