is this publication?
Reviews" provide an initial process whereby all currently available
extinction data for species within a given taxon are assembled, analyzed,
and species are assigned to an extinction category. To complement this,
The Extinction Forumwill provide a central location for the documentation
of newextinction-related information as this evidence becomes
available. The Extinction Forumwill ensure that researchers have
a place specifically designed for the rapid publication of their extinction-related
evidence. This will also ensure that this information will be much easier
to locate in the future, greatly aiding data collection and analysis.
The Extinction Forumprovides CREO with a way to monitor new data
about extinctions, and fits into our research program as a means of
updating and maintaining extinction surveys.
