The Society publishes Madroño, a quarterly scientific journal of peer-reviewed research articles on the natural history of Western American botanical organisms and vegetation, including those of Mexico, Central America, and South America. Original research papers and notes (in English or Spanish) on ecology, systematics, floristics, restoration, conservation biology, and other areas of organismal botany are routinely found in Madroño. We also publish noteworthy collections: a tabulation of range extensions and new species.

All individual members receive Madroño free, in print and online. Subscriptions to Madroño are available for institutions. The publication of Madroño is supported by membership dues and institutional subscriptions. Membership and institutional subscriptions are based on the volume year of Madroño, which follows the calendar year.
