Call for papers: Predictive biogeography

Extended deadline: 30 November!

We are opening a call for papers for a special issue on Predictive Biogeography. Predictive biogeography is a subdiscipline of biogeography that uses known...

Call for papers: Towards Experimental Macroecology

Global environmental changes are affecting biological systems across the planet, but limited understanding of ecological dynamics and feedbacks hampers predictive understanding of such effects. Macroecology (“the ecology of large scales”) has long...

Call for papers - Disease Ecology

Schematic illustrations of forest-derived infections. The left panel represents a forested pristine environment with colored dots illustrating the distribution of four different emerging infectious diseases (EIDs), naturally present in this type of ecosystem, and...

Predicting the abundance of birds across large geographical areas is essential for sound conservation planning. However, as the saying goes...

Restoration special issue

Through its Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021–2030), the United Nations calls upon our global community to massively upscale the recovery of degraded nature, in order to fight our climate and biodiversity crises more effectively....
