Journal Information

Ecography is the outlet for empirical and theoretical work in spatial ecology, macroecology and biogeography

ECOGRAPHY publishes papers focused on broad spatial and temporal patterns, particularly studies of population and community ecology, macroecology, biogeography, and ecological conservation. Studies in ecological genetics and historical ecology are welcomed in the context of explaining contemporary ecological patterns. Manuscripts are expected to address general principles in ecology, though they may do so using a specific model system if this frames the problem relative to a generalised ecological issue.


Ecography is available as fulltext for subscribers online at Wiley Online Library and Ingenta. Back issues are available at JSTOR.

Papers generally are expected to be based on concise hypotheses or to relate to concise theoretical concepts based on sound natural history. Purely descriptive papers are considered only if breaking new ground and/or describing patterns seldom explored. Manuscripts merely confirming or marginally extending results of previous work are discouraged. Papers are judged by virtue of their originality, appeal to general interest, and their contribution to new developments in ecological research concerning spatial and temporal patterns. There is no bias with regard to taxon, biome, or biogeographical area.

Ecography publishes the following types of articles: Original research papers, Forum, Review and synthesis, Software notes, Brevia, and News and Views. For article format, please see author guide lines.
