This revised and updated BGCI CITES Manual reflects the evolution of CITES itself since 1994, when this pamphlet was first published. It brings up-to-date the original CITES Manual compiled by John Akeroyd, Noel McGough and Peter Wyse Jackson in 1994. Greater understanding of how plants are used commercially, both in rural populations and in large international trade, has pushed the CITES into new territory. This revised edition features the following chapters: * Preface * Introduction * Outline of CITES * CITES procedures * The contribution of botanic gardens to the implementation of CITES * A CITES checklist for botanic gardens * References and resources * Glossary

This manual sets out the principles and practices of CITES as they relate to botanic gardens. Botanic gardens have a key role in implementing CITES, which seeks to protect endangered species from threats due to trade. Illegal trade in plants is a serious problem as pressure, for example medicinal plant collection, increases globally.
