“Conservation Biology is now a discipline, a recognizable and coherent body of facts, theories, and technologies. This new journal is intended to demonstrate this claim, to be a voice for the emerging discipline, and to aid its development.” So began the first editorial of the first issue of Conservation Biology in May 1987. We are now 20 years old, and this is the 101st issue of the journal. We have published well over 24,000 pages, and the average single issue today is about as large as the entire first year of the journal. In 20 years we have grown steadily in volume and, more significant, in breadth and stature within the community of scholarly literature. Growth for the sake of growth is not our objective, of course. As we have grown, the quality of articles has been maintained and their scientific impact has increased. But impact measured by influence on the state of the Earth's biota or the values of the world population is clearly what we aspire to.
