Oryx—The International Journal of Conservation

Copies of Oryx

The Conservationist’s Journal Oryx—The International Journal of Conservation, published quarterly by Cambridge University Press on behalf of Fauna & Flora International, is a leading scientific journal of biodiversity conservation, conservation policy and sustainable use, with a particular interest in material that has the potential to improve conservation management and practice.

The website www.oryxthejournal.org plays a vital role in the journal’s capacity-building work.

Amongst the site’s many attributes is a compendium of sources of free software for researchers and details of how to access Oryx at reduced rates or for free in developing countries.

The website also includes extracts from Oryx issues published 10, 25 and 50 years ago, and a gallery of research photographs that provide a fascinating insight into the places, species and people described in the journal.

The January issue of Oryx is made freely available on the Cambridge Journals website each year. The January 2015 issue of Oryx, which contains 22 research articles as well as a range of other material, is available until the end of December 2015.

The July 2015 issue of Oryx features a special section of articles dedicated to reviewing various approaches to tree conservation, and was produced in collaboration with the Global Trees Campaign. In the Editorial Sir Peter Crane of Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies poses the question ‘Can we save the charismatic megaflora?’. He reminds us of the value of trees to humanity, not only in a purely utilitarian, economic sense but also culturally and spiritually, and concludes with a rallying call to ‘ask not what nature can do for us, but what we can do for nature’. The lead article, by Tejedor Garavito et al., presents the first regional conservation assessment of upper montane tree species in the Tropical Andes. In other articles, Newton et al. highlight the need for a Global Tree Assessment, Cavender et al. consider how the role of botanical gardens in tree conservation can be strengthened, Hoffmann et al. describe how they identified target species and seed sources for the restoration of threatened trees in the Araucaria Forest of southern Brazil, Daltry et al. describe their technique for sustainable harvesting of incense from the lansan tree Protium attenuatum, Beaune asks what would happen to the trees and lianas if apes disappeared, Rodríguez-Echeverry et al. consider the impacts of anthropogenic land-use change on the Endangered Patagonian cypress Fitzroya cupressoides in southern Chile, and Brown et al. identify essential ecological factors underpinning the development of a conservation plan for the Endangered Alectryon ramiflorus in Australia.
