Center for Conservation Biology Department of Biological Sciences Stanford University Stanford, CA 94305, USA. Self-congratulationhas taken an extreme form in our new science of conservation biology, as workers define and redefine the field. Each new monograph and journal issue seems to describe conservation biology in more glowing terms - a mission-oriented, synthetic, crisis discipline! What we are acknowledging, in our way, is that the population genetics and ecology we have been doing for so long is finally being noticed. Population biology with a purpose. We now have a role in determining the fate of life on earth, a role in stemming the tidal wave of extinctions that is sweeping our planet of its biological diversity. Eight years after the first conference on conservation biology and two years after the creation of a society for conservation biology, the time may be ripe to recess Erom congratulating ourselves and to rephrase Mayor Kochâs often-askedquestion -âHow are we doing?âA national forum on biological diversity, adoption by the World Bank of strong wildland policy, and creation of new management strategies for species protection in our national parks all suggest that the word is out and that the message is being heard in
