Featured Articles
Ecography strives to publish outstanding scientific articles treating spatial and temporal patterns in ecology. To demonstrate our commitment, Ecography provides free and immediate access to a selection of recent and classic papers that we feel represent the journal's scope. The articles have been suggested by the Subject Editors of Ecography and are represen¬tative of the excellent research that we are proud to be publishing in our journal. Papers have been selected based on their originality, appeal to general interest, and their contribution to new developments in ecological research. The list of articles is being constantly updated and we hope you will have the opportunity to see your own work appear here in the future.
