The Extinction Forum: Miscellaneous Notes

The "Miscellaneous Notes" section will provide contributors with a venue for the publication of any minor extinction data that is not appropriate or too small to merit inclusion in the "Nominations" and "Responses" sections, or that relate to species which have not been previously nominated to an extinction category. Examples of information we expect to be included in the "Miscellaneous Notes" section are:

  • comments on taxonomic status of a possibly extinct species
  • relevant data on sampling and environmental change
  • "negative evidence," that is, continuing evidence of a species' absence that provides valuable confirmation of a hypothesized extinction
  • notes highlighting published information which has been previously overlooked or may be difficult to locate
  • notes highlighting mortal remains of specimens not already cited in a CREO produced publication or database
