Book on little-known species and conservation provides guidance to managers and others
Date:12/21/2007

PORTLAND, Ore. December 21, 2007. In the early 1990s, federal agencies in the West were asked to implement the Northwest Forest Plan. Part of that task involved an inventory and conservation plan for more than 300 rare species believed to be associated with old-growth forests. Debates arose among the agency leads regarding how to begin this daunting task and how best to carry it out.

The recently published Conservation of Rare or Little-Known Species, by Island Press, answers questions regarding alternative approaches to conserving rare or little-known species; the economic, legal, social implications; and other issues.

An excellent resource for anyone who cares about conservation of rare species, this book is accessible to a lay audience--people simply interested in the issueas well as students, land managers, policymakers, and scientists.

This book arose out of a conference [Innovations in Species Conservation] held in Portland in 2003, says co-editor, Martin Raphael, a research wildlife biologist at the Forest Services Pacific Northwest Research Station. I was asked to lead a team to develop a white paper on the concepts that were to be discussed in that conference. This book is the culmination of that process.

Randy Molina, retired from the Pacific Northwest Research Station, is a co-editor of this book and now works as a private consultant on mycological issues in forestry.
