CITES Appendix III and the Trade in Big-Leafed Mahogany

 Summary & Conclusion (Summary & conclusion, English & Spanish, 80 KB) (Scanned full report in English, 2.3 MB) Ximena Buitrón, Teresa Mulliken. (June 1997). 24pp. In late 1995, Big-Leafed Mahogany was listed in Appendix III of CITES, thereby requiring all shipments of timber from the species in Central and South America to be accompanied by documents verifying its origin. The report, which analyses the implementation of Appendix III listing during 1996, shows that countries have taken important steps to implement the listing, but some trade in Big-Leafed Mahogany continues without appropriate documentation.
