/Word macro for automating generation of cite journal citations of IUCN Red List pages

The following archived articles are mostly lists of megafauna that have been deleted from Wikipedia proper; see Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of megafauna (the "List of semiaquatic organisms" archive has been reworked into List of semiaquatic tetrapods). I'm considering trying to work them into some sort of acceptable form, based on creating mass ranges for the various species to be listed under and abandoning any notion that the articles contain lists of all megafaunal species (which is impossible because there is no universally accepted definition of megafauna). The result would be lists of species with maximum adult mass above some limit, much as there are lists of mountains with an altitude above some limit, or cities with a population above some limit.

So, from my perspective, one of the useful things anyone wishing to work on these articles could do would be to look up approximate adult weights of each of the megafaunal species. The source of the weight figure should also be given (a reference preferably, but if simply from another Wikipedia article, that should be linked). While you're at it, it wouldn't hurt to use the citation templates. For extinct species, if no weight estimate is available, it would be appropriate to look up the weight of a living species of similar dimensions and body type (e.g., assume that an extinct proboscidean would have a weight similar to that of a living elephant of similar size). Perhaps it would be necessary to use allometry-based estimates in cases where no living species has a similar size and shape.

NOTE: functional category tags should not be placed in these subpages while they are in user space.
