The latest addition to your bookmarks - Conserv at tion is the
successor to Wild Flower News. In deference to the broad
coverage of wildlife conservation matters in Britain, the name has
been changed and there's a new easier-to read format too.
The review will still veer towards botanical coverage but will
include any matters of general conservation concern.
