ANPC: Call for articles for Australasian Plant Conservation Vol. 20 (3)

We are seeking articles for the December 2011 – February 2012 issue of Australasian Plant Conservation (APC), the bulletin of the Australian Network for Plant Conservation (ANPC).

The issue will be on the theme ‘Monitoring and plant conservation’.

Monitoring is an important aspect of plant conservation work, providing data to assess changes over time and allowing people to make informed decisions about management practices, and make changes to those practices if necessary. In this issue we want to look at the objectives of monitoring, what should be monitored and how, and how we can keep monitoring simple but effective. We are particularly interested to receive articles related to specific examples of effective monitoring of the outcomes of on-ground plant conservation activities, monitoring vegetation condition, and long-term monitoring, and to learn of the insights/lessons for those about to embark on their first monitoring program.

General articles not on the theme are also welcome.

Articles generally should not exceed 1200 words and authors are encouraged to submit two or three high resolution images to illustrate their article.

We also welcome:
• book reviews
• titles of interesting recent publications or resources, and where they can be found
• conference, workshop, course and fieldwork announcements
• details of relevant publications, information resources and websites.

Deadline for submissions for the December-February 2012 issue is Friday 11 November 2011.

If you are intending to submit an article or wish to discuss possibilities, please contact the Editor, Selga Harrington as soon as possible. Your final article must be submitted to Selga by email at selga.harrington@gmail.com

Guidelines for authors about the APC style and scope are located on the ANPC website.
