MPSG Newsletter

IUCN SSC Medicinal Plant Specialist Group Co-chairs Danna Leaman and Anastasiya Timoshyna are delighted to announce the merge of our newsletter, Medicinal Plant Conservation, with the Journal of Medicinal Plant Conservation, published by United Plant Savers. The 2020 issue of JMPC inaugurates our collaboration.

The first volume of the Medicinal Plant Conservation newsletter was published 30 April 1995, under the direction of then Co-chairs Uwe Schippmann and Tony Cunningham, with support from the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (Bundesamt für Naturschutz). We thank Dr Uwe Schippmann (editor) and Natalie Hofbauer (production manager) for the 13 volumes of the Medicinal Plant Conservation Newsletter published 1995-2007, both online and in print. Following a time of searching for new editor, the newsletter was again published (online) under the editorship of Dr Helle O Larsen (volumes 14 and 15 in 2011 and 2012) with support of University of Copenhagen, Rolighedsve, Denmark. Another search for an editor has happily resulted in the offer of United Plant Saver’s executive director, Susan Leopold, to combine Medicinal Plant Conservation with the United Plant Savers’ Journal of Medicinal Plant Conservation. We thank United Plant Savers and the members of MPSG who have contributed to this issue and look forward to our collaboration into the future.
