The Extinction Forum

What is this publication?

"Major 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.
