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 Core website each year. The January 2017 issue of Oryx, which contains 16 research articles as well as a special section on biodiversity offsetting and conservation, is available until the end of December 2017.

To mark the downlisting of the snow leopard Panthera uncia from Endangered to Vulnerable, the October issue of Oryx includes a special section on the distribution and conservation status of this enigmatic species. Articles include David Mallon and Rodney Jackson’s thought-provoking piece ‘A downlist is not a demotion: Red List status and reality’, and the journal’s first-ever Commentary on the elusive snow leopard by Chardutt Mishra. The newly published and archived articles cited in this Commentary are now freely available as a unique virtual issue.

In addition to snow leopards, the October issue features research on herpetofauna conservation in Indonesia, Australia and Sri Lanka as well as articles on the conservation of the world’s largest populations of khulan and goitered gazelle, range-wide surveys of the Critically Endangered Livingstone’s fruit bat, and responses of the Endangered red panda to anthropogenic disturbances in Bhutan. The October Editorial discusses the essential elements of collaboration between conservationists and communities and argues that co-assessment of existing knowledge is more cost-effective and potentially more appropriate than the co-production of new knowledge. The final issue of 2017 concludes with reviews of two newly published books – Life as a Hunt: Thresholds of Identities and Illusions on an African Landscape and The Partners Principles for Community-based Conservation.
