IUCN is a science-based organization that supports and generates new conservation knowledge regularly. For a sampling of that science, as published in the peer-reviewed literature, we present journal articles from IUCN scientists, be they in the Commissions or the Secretariat. It is this foundation of knowledge that supports our work around the world. We thank these scientists for providing us with their knowledge.

 We present the list in the context of IUCN’s programme and by year of publication.
