Release of the 8th edition of The Evolution of CITES
CITES Secretariat is pleased to announce the release of the 8th
edition of The
Evolution of CITES (5.5 MB). As with all previous editions,
this book presents the provisions of the Convention and relevant
Resolutions and Decisions in an accessible way as well as providing
explanations and comments to facilitate an understanding of the
Convention and of how it should be implemented.
However, for the first time, this fully electronic edition is
based on ‘e-book’ technology which provides unequalled
navigability and hypertextuality through a very user-friendly
interface. All that readers need to do is to download the file
onto their computers and then take a few minutes to get familiar
with the functions provided by the software. The e-book also allows
readers to print the sections of their choice.
Feedback on the contents of this new edition and on the e-book
medium would be greatly appreciated, particularly since the electronic
format allows for improvements to be made regularly without having
to wait for the next edition to be printed. Comments should be
sent to Willem Wijnstekers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 8th edition of The Evolution of CITES is currently
available in English only. Please note that you may have to lower
