Overview



Aims and Scope


Global Ecology and Biogeography focuses on the emerging field of macroecology: the study of broad, consistent patterns in the ecological characteristics of organisms and ecosystems. The journal emphasizes studies that address general ecological hypotheses, explored and tested using data of broad geographic, taxonomic, or temporal scope.  A variety of approaches are represented: empirical studies documenting ecological and biogeographic patterns, theoretical studies that explore the causes of those patterns, applied studies of impacts of anthropogenic influences, as well as methodological studies of the tools used to study these problems.  Recent work published in Global Ecology and Biogeography has included topics such as broad-scale patterns of biodiversity, ecosystem responses to global climate change, historical and evolutionary biogeography, remote sensing of ecosystem properties, species abundance and species range patterns, and statistical methodologies.  The journal was established in 1991 and is published in 6 issues a year.

Global Ecology and Biogeography is published as part of a single subscription package with its sister journals Journal of Biogeography, and Diversity and Distributions. Together these journals provide comprehensive coverage of the fields of biogeography, ecology and biodiversity. The editors may decide to transfer material between the journals where this is deemed most suitable. All papers submitted to the journals are subject to peer review.
