Virtual Issue on Conservation

Biological Reviews has a long and distinguished history. It is produced by the Cambridge Philosophical Society, which promotes research and communication in all branches of science. Biological Reviews was first published in 1923 and was a successor to the Society's Transactions, which began publication in 1821, shortly after the society's formation in 1819.

Reviews on topics related to Conservation Biology have begun to appear in Biological Reviews only relatively recently. This is in line with the growing confidence and maturity of the field itself. To encourage the submission of further high-quality submissions on Conservation Biology, we have assembled a virtual issue of reviews on this topic, which you can read for FREE during ATBC.
