In the past decade Conservation Biology has become the most influential and frequently cited journal in its field. Nature calls this title "required reading for ecologists throughout the world." The journal continues to publish groundbreaking papers and remains instrumental in defining the key issues contributing to the study and preservation of species and habitats. The Society for Conservation Biology and its members appreciate the increasing and alarming rate of species and habitat loss in our world and remain committed to the movement of conservation biology to the forefront of the sciences. Only by understanding the scientific basis of conservation can we effectively confront the extinction crisis. JSTOR provides a digital archive of the print version of Conservation Biology. The electronic version of Conservation Biology is available at http://www.interscience.wiley.com. Authorized users may be able to access the full text articles at this site.
