In this issue of Wings we celebrate forty years of invertebrate conservation by the Xerces Society. Instead of the usual selection of articles, we present an overview of Xerces’ history in three parts; each section has an introduction by an individual who had significant responsibility for the Society’s work in that era, followed by descriptions of various initiatives of each period prepared by Xerces staff members. We’re pleased, also, on this occasion, to acknowledge all those who have participated in building the Xerces Society into the successful organization it is today.
