Our philosophy

The philosophy of our journal is to be author friendly and to look for reasons to publish rather than reject. More here.

We are excited to announce a new category of paper: "Academic Practice in Ecology and Evolution." Read more about it here.

Introducing the new Editor in Chief

We are delighted to introduce Dr Jennifer Firn as the new Editor-in-Chief for Ecology and Evolution

Jennifer Firn

Dr Firn is currently Associate Professor, School of Earth, Environmental and Biological Sciences at Queensland University of Technology. Dr Firn is a theoretical and applied ecologist who specializes in linking ecological theory to the sustainable management of degraded grasslands and forests. The driving motivation throughout Dr. Firn’s career has been to find smarter, cheaper and more sustainable ways of restoring degraded plant communities. Dr. Firn is a scientist because of her commitment to developing a better understanding of how the loss of native biodiversity impacts on ecosystems and subsequently finding better ways to bring it back.
