New OA journal on tropical conservation

Tropical Conservation Science is a new peer-reviewed OA journal publishing "research relating to conservation of tropical forests and of other tropical ecosystems". The inaugural issue was released in March 2008. See the March 3 press release.

The journal is published by, an environmental science news site, and will be published quarterly. Submissions are accepted in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German and Chinese; submissions in a language other than English will be published alongside an author-supplied English translation. The submission guidelines ask authors to agree to the Creative Common Attribution License, but I don't see the license tagged on the first issue. (Thanks to Bio-Medicine.)
