A Virtual Issue of Mammal Review on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of The Wildlife Society

With this Virtual Issue, Mammal Review congratulates The Wildlife Society on its jubilee, and presents recent reviews relevant for The Wildlife Society. Although Mammal Review covers all aspects of mammalian biology and ecology, articles about mammals which are hunted or managed constitute a major part to this journal. This includes analytical reviews of current theoretical and applied research on mammals, practical assessments of techniques for studying mammals, and large-scale considerations of the status, conservation and management of mammals.

With an increasing number of scientific journals it gets hard to keep track on general aspects of zoology. Hence, review journals are like beacons in the haze of available publications. In line with this, Mammal Review increased its Impact Factor in 2011, and is now over 3 for the first time in its history. The journal is ranked fifth in the Zoology category, and is thus the leading journal in mammalogy. We hope that our journal contributes to help The Wildlife Society to fulfill its mission, namely to foster the conservation of wild mammals and their habitats.

I invite you to use Mammal Review as a source and a place to publish your knowledge and wish you an inspiring and fruitful conference in Portland.
