is this publication?
Recently Extinct Species
is a monographic series; each issue will be two or three pages long
and will focus on a particular species that has gone extinct in recent
times. While "Major Reviews" will result
in a critically reviewed listing of all extinctions within a taxonomic
group, as well as assignment of species to an extinction category, Recently
Extinct Species will provide a comprehensive summary of all relevant
information about one particular species' extinction.
The information collected in
this series will be incorporated into our database, World's
Recently Extinct Species.
