 Comments
       
  Comment: Status: U.S. ESA - Endangered; IUCN - Critically Endangered as G. g. acaciae and G. g. muscatensis, Endangered as G. g. gazella, otherwise Vulnerable as G. gazella, G. g. cora and G. g. farasini  
    Comments: Reviewed by Mendelssohn et al. (1995, Mammalian Species, 490), revised by Groves (1996a). Subspecies darehshourii and farasani apparently based on introduced populations. Captive population in King Khalid Wildlife Research Center, Thumamah, Saudi Arabia may represent an undescribed subspecies (Groves, 1996a, 1997c)  
    US ESA: Listed Endangered as Gazella gazella arabica, as published in Federal Register Volume 44, Number 123, Pages 37124 - 37127, June 25, 1979
