Stout cycads are an ancient plant species, pre-dating dinosaurs and remaining virtually unchanged for millions of years. These “living fossils” offer an important link to prehistoric times, and their rarity and highly threatened status mean regulations are more important than ever.
CITES and Cycads offers straightforward guidance on the trade regulations set by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), combining rules and exemptions with information on distribution, trade routes, and conservation status. Written for the non-expert, it features identification tips and a checklist of cycad species as well as notes on illegal trade and suggestions on handling enforcement. A CD-ROM containing a fully illustrated PowerPoint with speaker’s notes rounds out this comprehensive guide to regulating these venerable and tenacious plants.
