About this book

Overview of all the cycads and the threats to their survival, followed by separate assessments for the 4 broad regions where cycads now occur (Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands, Australia, Asia, and the New World). Includes a chapter dedicated to the trade of cycads and the effectiveness of control measures such as CITES. Also assesses the global status of cycad collections. Presents a set of objectives and actions to reduce the threat to cycads in the wild and to provide ex situ conservation for those that almost certainly will become extinct in the wild.
