Endangered Species Update Magazine
With increased pressures on our world's plant and animal life, the success of endangered species recovery programs is more important than ever. The major downfalls faced by professionals involved in these programs, however, are based in miscommunication - scientists do not talk to policy makers and policy makers do not consult scientists. The Endangered Species UPDATE, and independently funded bimonthly journal published by the University of Michigan's School of Natural Resources and Environment, recognizes the paralyzing power of poor communication. The UPDATE's primary goal is to bridge the chasm between policy and science.

Hawaii's Endangered and Threatened Species
The Hawaii Biological Survey (HBS), established by the State Legislature in 1992 as a program of the Bishop Museum, is an ongoing natural history inventory of the Hawaiian Archipelago. It was created to locate, identify, evaluate, all native and non-native species of flora and fauna within the State and maintain the reference collections of that flora and fauna for a wide range of uses. In coordination with related activities in other federal, state, and private agencies (such as the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, National Biological Service, The Nature Conservancy, the Hawaii State Department of Land and Natural Resources, the Hawaii State Department of Agriculture, University of Hawaii's Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology program, and many others), the HBS will gather, analyze, and disseminate the biological information necessary for the wise stewardship of Hawai`i's biological resources. The HBS will conduct a coordinated inventory and monitoring program to assess the overall status and trends in the abundance, health, and distribution of plants and animals, as well as the ecosystems upon which they depend.

In addition, students are linked with scientists who provide their expertise directly to the classroom. Several migrations are tracked by satellite telemetry, providing live coverage of individual animals as they migrate. As the spring season sweeps across the Hemisphere, students note changes in daylight, temperatures, & all living things as the food chain comes back to life.

The Animal Diversity Web is a collection of pictures and information about animals. Accounts of individual species include information on distributions, natural history, conservation, and economic importance, along with pictures and sounds if available. Synopses of some higher taxonomic groups are also provided. The information is arranged in a taxonomic hierarchy for ease of navigation, and "shortcuts" (either through searching for specific names or characteristics or through direct links to some taxa) make it simple to find particular species or groups of species.
