WCS Working Papers

The WCS Working Paper Series is designed to share with the conservation and development communities in a timely fashion information from the various settings where WCS works. These papers address issues that are of immediate importance to helping conserve wildlife and wild lands either through offering new data or analyses relevant to specific conservation settings, or through offering new methods, approaches, or perspectives on rapidly evolving conservation issues. The findings, interpretations, and conclusions expressed in the papers are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Wildlife Conservation Society.

WCS staff interested in publishing a working paper should contact the WCS Library for guidelines.
