A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place.

Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg. Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.

How do series work? Goodall takes time to express her thoughts on the state of elephants, and remembers in vivid telling her experiences with these remarkable beings.
Today, and as a part of a commitment to protect those who cannot speak for themselves, let us use Dr. They are being slaughtered by the thousands — on average each day. Save the Elephants the NGO founded by Iain Douglas Hamilton estimates an average of 33, elephants were lost to poachers every year between and Over 64 percent of elephants in Central Africa have vanished in the past decade.
Jane Goodall: how many elephants will be killed on World Elephant Day?
And in Tanzania, where poaching has been shocking, the estimated number of individuals has dropped from almost , to just over 43, in the past five years. At this rate, some populations may well be utterly gone in about ten years. Read the full article here.
How wonderful it was to see them feeding, using their trunks like hands to pick leaves overhead, or tear up lush green grass in great bunches, then push the food into their mouths. And special times when I watched them bathing in a river, sucking up trunk fulls of water and squirting it over their backs, sometimes submerging with just the tips of their trunks showing like periscopes above the water. And what fun the young elephants have playing in the water, squirting each other and messing about like kids in a swimming pool.
There are close supportive bonds between family members that can last throughout their 60 or so years of life. They have the same emotions of happiness, sadness, fear, despair and so on as we do. They try to help family members or friends who are wounded. And they grieve when one dies. And, because of the value of ivory, nearly elephants die every day.
Each one with his or her own personality and a valued member of the herd. It is fantastic news for the elephants and for those fighting to save them since China is the biggest market for ivory.
I believe this to be an extremely important legislation in view of the unacceptable slaughter of live elephants simply to supply ivory for international trade. It is not only elephants, but also rhinos, tigers, pangolins and many other species who are being pushed to the very brink of extinction in the wild by international trade in wildlife — including the live animal trade in addition to body parts. I understand that the traders have been warned for many years that they should prepare and sell their ivory stocks.
If compensation is offered the traders will seek to increase their stocks from illegally poached elephants before the ban is finalized. Elephants populations in Africa are facing unprecedented levels of poaching, rangers are losing their lives, and the tourist industry which brings in desperately needed foreign exchange to many African countries has already been adversely affected.
For the above reasons, and on behalf of the elephants themselves long lived, highly intelligent and extremely social I urge the Hong Kong government to impose the ivory ban, introduce increased penalties for all wildlife crime, and refuse to compensate ivory traders for their stocks.
