Recently Extinct Species

What 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.
