Notes: These are short articles (typically fewer than 3000 words), detailing incidental records or observations. Examples include natural history observations, observations of potential or known threats, spotlighting records, or a report of a small (e.g. under five) number of camera-trap records. Abstracts should be included, but are not a requirement: submissions can be written as simple notes detailing the record(s) or observation(s). The editors can provide guidance if required.


These include compilations and reviews of camera-trap records, including by-catch; literature reviews; and assessments of a species's (or multiple species’) national, regional or global conservation status. Submissions can be any length.
