This page simply lists recent news articles relating to conservation biology. It is not exhaustive - simply those articles that I come across during my reading of the media. It started as a section of the web page for EEB 2208 (Introduction to Conservation Biology), but students seemed to find it useful enough for me to keep it going for the time being. If others in the EEBedia community want to add to the list, please feel free to do so. I only ask that you keep to the existing format, limit any commentary about articles to brief descriptive statements so as to not clog up space, that you focus on articles in the news media that relate to conservation science (broader environmental science issues should find their own home), and that you don't clog the page up with multiple articles on the same piece of news. If you have questions, please email me. Chris Elphick
