From Plant Press, Vol. 4, No. 3 from July 2001.
The Plant Conservation Unit has recently revised the Web site of the Biological Conservation Newsletter, which is now available at <http://rathbun.si.edu/bcn> (please note the new URL). The revised Web site includes a new searchable “BCN Bibliography,” which consists of over 15,500 references to literature on conservation biology (both plant and animal biology). The citations come from the “Current Literature” section of BCN, dating back from 1983 to the present. These references have been obtained from a weekly review of new journals and books received by the National Museum of Natural History libraries, from a monthly scan of Current Contents, and from suggestions submitted by subscribers to the newsletter.
The bibliography currently includes over 14,200 article titles and 1,300 book titles. The article citations come from nearly 940 different scientific journals, newsletters, bulletins and newspapers. A searchable interface allows visitors to look for a particular article by selecting the title, author, or keyword field and entering a keyword, phrase, or name. Many articles link directly to their corresponding journal’s homepage, where some journals allow non-subscribers to view abstracts and/or articles. New citations can easily be added to the bibliography by contacting the BCN editor at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
