This editorial introduces a new series in this journal featuring generic theories of change (ToCs) for key conservation strategies. We hope these ToCs can both help practitioners learn about each strategy as well as enable the collection of standardized data across specific implementations of each strategy in different conditions. These data will, in turn, inform increasingly more systematic assessments of the strategy, thus contributing to the evidence base of strategy effectiveness.
