Global Trees Campaign

Along with increasing concerns about the extinction of different animal species, there has been increased interest in monitoring the fate of plant species, particularly those of various trees. Drawing on a partnership between Flora & Fauna International and the UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre, the Global Trees Campaign Web site serves as an online conduit for information about endangered tree species. First-time visitors will want to read the various tree profiles along the right-hand side of the homepage. Some of the species covered here include the African blackwood, Honduras rosewood, and the monkey puzzle tree, which grows naturally in Chile and Argentina. The resources section of the site is also worth a look, as it contains a database with information on close to 7,300 tree species, and list of suggested readings -- including several that are available as PDF files. For those interested in the projects initiated by the Global Trees Campaign, a section detailing their various initiatives around the globe is also available for consultation.
