Announcing the release of a new book:

Conservation and Management of Native Plants and Fungi
--Proceedings of an Oregon Conference on the Conservation and Management
  of Native Vascular Plants, Bryophytes, and Fungi--

Edited by:  Thomas N. Kaye, Aaron Liston, Rhoda M. Love, Daniel L. Luoma,
Robert J. Meinke, and Mark V. Wilson.  With a foreword by Reed F. Noss,
Oregon State University.  Native Plant Society of Oregon.

The management of native plants faces many challenges today, and the
attention of many conservationists has recently expanded to include
bryophytes, lichens and fungi.  This book addresses this subject through
the perspective of professional land managers, conservationists, and
academic scientists from Oregon and neighboring states.  Forty papers
comprise the volume, which is broken into four themes representing
conservation, restoration, ecology, and systematics.  The book is the
first of its kind for the conservation community in the Pacific
Northwest; it is based on a symposium held 15-17 November 1995 on the
Oregon State University campus.  Although most papers have a regional
focus, the book is pertinent to all students and professionals in the
fields of botany and conservation biology.
