"The Red List of Acer" - to be published in early 2020.

Coming Soon, The Red List of Acer – Revised and Extended, a new publication by BGCI on the conservation status of all maple species

If you are interested in the conservation of maple species, then you may be pleased to hear that a new booklet detailing the conservation status of maples will be published in early 2020 by Botanic Gardens Conservation International (“BGCI”)

The Red List of Maples, (published in 2009 by BGCI), is currently the authoritative listing of the conservation status worldwide of all maple (Acer) species. However, it is now almost 11 years since its publication, during which much has changed.

An updated red list will be published in the 1st quarter of 2020 by BGCI under the title The Red List of Acer - Revised and Extended and will give details of the latest conservation status of all maple species.

As part of their commitment to maple conservation, The Maple Society and its North American Branch have jointly funded the printing and distribution of The Red List of Acer to botanic and academic institutions concerned with the conservation and preservation of maples.

When The Red List of Acer is published, it will only be available to the general public via a free download from the BGCI website.

Whilst the printed, 48 page, booklet will not be made available to the general public, The Maple Society is pleased to announce that it will have a limited number of the official, printed, The Red List of Acer booklets which it is able to offer to members of the Maple Society at £5.00 each plus postage at the rates as listed below:

  • UK: £1.72 = Total Cost per Copy £6.72
  • Mainland Europe, Russian Federation, and the Irish Republic: £4.60 = Total Cost per Copy £9.60
  • Rest of the World (excl Australia, New Zealand and Oceania): £6.80 = Total Cost per Copy £11.80
  • Australia, New Zealand and Oceania: £7.20 = Total Cost per Copy = £12.20

Members of The Maple Society can order “The Red List of Acer” booklet in advance of its publication, see below, with payment by PayPal, you do not need to have a PayPal account to pay by this method. Alternatively, a copy can be ordered by post, details below.

This may be the only opportunity for members of The Maple Society to buy the official, printed The Red List of Acer booklet as BGCI will not be making it publicly available in hard print.
