NEW CENTER FOR ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH AND CONSERVATION


While the consequences of species loss are becoming a reality, the response one institution is taking will hopefully combat or stymie the current trend of degradation. One of the leading research institutions in the United States, Columbia University, has formed an interdisciplinary, multi-institutional center in response to the greatest environmental crisis of our time: the ever increasing disappearance of plant, animal and other life from our planet. The Center for Environmental Research and Conservation (CERC) brings together Columbia University, the American Museum of Natural History, the New York Botanical Garden, the Wildlife Conservation Society (based at the Bronx Zoo) and Wildlife Preservation Trust International. The United Nations Development Programme is also linked to CERC through the department's governing panel. CERC will also utilize the many other established departments at the university, taking advantage of a large student cross-section interested in conservation.

A primary objective will be to train the future scientists and policy makers who will have to face the challenge of stemming the tide of extinctions and protecting the natural systems that support human life. A unique feature of this training center will be the integral involvement of people from major research institutions, conservation organizations, and policy bodies, as well as from the broad range of disciplines found at a major research university like Columbia.

Conservation organizations and natural science research institutions in New York are also examining their place in the environmental field, partially in response to the enthusiasm expressed by Columbia for reentry into biological conservation. Some of the objectives and goals of the Center include conducting ecological, taxonomic and genetic work and assessments of the long-term viability of selected populations of species, establishing viable protected areas, and developing techniques for ecosystem restoration. Other goals include: 1) becoming a leader in the assessment of floral, faunal, and genetic diversity, and in developing effective policy positions on biodiversity; 2) being recognized as an authoritative source. CERC hopes to become the outlet through which conservation practitioners can access the media, governments, and international agencies. The target audience is not only academics and policy makers, but the general public, whom the Center hopes to reach through the popular media and through a newsletter for non-professionals; 3) creating model programs of conservation work in countries with critical conservation needs( e.g. Belize, Brazil, Dominica, Indonesia, Kenya, Malaysia, and Tanzania; 4) becoming the origin of information on research and clinical practice of alternative medical treatments such as Chinese, Ayurvedic and other traditional medical practices and promoting study of the integration of people and their environment.

Presently, undergraduate and graduate curriculum plans for CERC are under development, and hope to be in place by September 1995. To do this, existing courses are being consolidated and new ones created. Full programs will be offered officially during the 1996-1997 academic year. Training programs for mid-career professionals, organized as the Morningside Institute, will also be developed at this time.

ATTENTION OUTREACH GROUPS


By Kathy Kelly

Usually ads request help or information; this ad offers help. I run an international outreach project that supplies wildlife publications (books, journals, magazines, and articles) to wildlife institutions outside the United States. The objective is to provide them with reference materials. Currently I have a glut of donations and can easily share as much as 200 pounds of publications to several recipients. These materials will be free. Some examples of available literature are: college texts; wildlife books; scientific articles donated by Walter Reed Army Hospital's pathology department; veterinary, avian, mammalogy, and physical anthropology journals; American Zoologist journals, most recognized wildlife magazines (including ZooLife, Wildlife Conservation, National/International Wildlife, Natural History, Audubon, Birders' World, Zoogoers, AAZPA's Communique, AAZK's Animal Keepers Forum, etc.); Science ; Science News; American Scientist; the list goes on. Almost all of these donations are organized and stored on bookcases. I also have several hundred baby bottle nipples to share.

Anyone interested in receiving these free publications, pleae contact Kathy Kelly, National Zoological Park, 3000 Block of Connecticut Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20008 or call Tel.: (202) 673-4869.


EDUCATIONAL MATERIAL


The Fish and Wildlife Service's Oklahoma Field Office has produced 30,000 posters of Oklahoma's 22 federally-listed threatened and endangered species. These large posters place an emphasis on providing important biological information, while also providing on the back of the poster, a natural history for all of the listed species, including their current status, description, range, diet, reasons for decline, and other notes of interest. The colorful posters can be used as a tool for stimulating discussions on habitat loss. The posters are being distributed without charge to schools, libraries, and teachers as well as federal, state and local agency offices. For a free copy, contact the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Oklahoma Field Office, 222 South Houston, Suite A, Tulsa, OK 74127; Tel.: (918) 581-7458.

NEW PUBLICATIONS


The conservation of plants is one of the most vital -- but still neglected -- issues of our time. Plants form the basis for life on earth, yet they are threatened as never before. Plant Talk, published quarterly by the Botanical Information Company, Ltd., of England, is a new magazine created to address the global issues of plant conservation. The format of Plant Talk is designed for anyone interested in the development, techniques, and activities of plant conservation. Each issue includes a feature explaining the techniques of plant conservation; inspirational stories of conservationists' successes; news of threats to plants and their habitats around the world; reviews of Red Data Books -- the vital books listing endangered plants; reports on Floras and Checklists; and information on new protected areas for plants. Reports on trade in rare plants will also be a frequent feature. Plant Talk is available only by subscription; Individuals (US $25); Organizations (US$ 60). To subscribe or receive a free introductory copy, please contact: Plant Talk, PO Box 65226, Tucson, AZ 85728-5226; outside the U.S.: Plant Talk, PO Box 400, Richmond, Surrey TW10 7XJ, UK.


FUTURE MEETINGS


August 5-11. The 5th Congress of Neotropical Ornithology will hold its conference in Asuncion, Paraguay to discuss the conservation and management of neotropical birds and their parent ecosystems. Specialists and scientists on birds of the Americas will participate in this week-long event discussing methodologies, discoveries, and developments which have taken place in the last four years in the Neotropics. With the theme, "Birds without borders", there will be a strong focus on the migration of birds, local and long distance. This theme and the conference hope to emphasis that an environment without birds is the first indication of the degradation and the impoverishment of the quality of life.

September 27-30. The Midwest Oak Savanna and Woodland Ecosystem Conference will be held in Springfield, Missouri at the University Plaza Hotel. Currently the oak savannas and woodlands, which were historically an important component of the North American landscape, are endangered. Many agencies, organizations, and individuals are engaged in research and management efforts to restore the biological integrity and complexity of these ecosystems. The goal of this meeting will be to focus scientific and public interest on midwestern oak savannas and woodlands, exchange knowledge about the biotic and abiotic processes that shape them, and expose resource stewards to the best available knowledge on the restoration and management of these rich systems. Information will be shared through invited and submitted technical papers and field-oriented workshops. For more information, contact: Dr. Ernie P. Wiggers, School of Natural Resources, 112 Stephens Hall, University of Missouri, Columbia, MO 65211; Tel.: (314) 882-9423; Fax:(314) 884-5070; E-mail: ffw3348@mizzoul.missouri.edu.
