Biotropica's New Editor-In-Chief!
Announcing Biotropica's new Editor-In-Chief, Emilio Bruna! Professor Emilio Bruna joined the faculty at the University of Florida in 2002 with joint appointments in the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation and Center for Latin American Studies. He and his students use field experiments, long-term demographic studies, and simple mathematical models to study how deforestation, road construction, agriculture, and other human activities in tropical ecosystems influence plant-animal interactions and plant population dynamics. Most of his research has been carried out in Amazonia and the Cerrado with grants and fellowships from the National Science Foundation, Ford Foundation, Smithsonian Institution, and the Packard Foundation. In 2005 he was named the University of Florida’s International Educator of the Year and in 2011 was honored as the Graduate Advisor & Teacher of the Year in the UF College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. His research has been recognized with the John L. Harper Award from the British Ecological Society, the Award for Excellence in Tropical Biology and Conservation from the ATBC, and the Outstanding Paper Award from the International Association for Landscape Ecology (US Chapter). Bruna received a BS in Ecology, Behavior, and Evolution and an MS in Biology from the University of California-San Diego. After earning a Ph.D. in Population Biology at the University of California-Davis (2001), he completed a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Brazil’s Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas da Amazônia. Bruna joined the ATBC as a graduate student in 1999 and served as a Councillor from 2009-2011; he joined the Editorial Board of Biotropica in 2007 and served as an Associate Editor from 2010-2013.
In 2015, Biotropica will move to online only publication , in trend with Wiley's path of digital transformation, as the company invests in the customizable, technology-enabled products and services needed by our customers in the future. The gradual migration of journals from print to solely online is part of this transition, supporting investment in forward-looking innovation and building online communities for journal readers and our society partners.

Biotropical Virtual Issue: Brazil
Brazil always fascinated early naturalists and continues to be an inspiration to contemporary biologists, resulting in a sophisticated literature advancing our understanding of the ecological and evolutionary factors structuring tropical ecosystems, documenting threats to their persistence, and describing innovative strategies for their conservation. With the eyes of the world on Brazil as it hosted the world’s most widely viewed sporting event – the 2014 FIFA World Cup – we present this collection of articles published in Biotropica that highlights Brazil’s unique ecosystems and biodiversity, the myriad research approaches used to understand and conserve them, and the diversity of scholars engaged in this critical research.
