Journal for Nature Conservation
The Journal for Nature Conservation deals with the application of science in the concepts, methods and techniques for nature conservation. This international and interdisciplinary journal offers a forum for the communication of modern approaches to nature conservation. It aims to provide both scientists and practitioners in conservation theory, policy and management with comprehensive and applicable information. In particular, the journal encourages cooperation between scientists and practitioners, including the integration of biodiversity issues with social and economic concepts. Therefore, review and research papers, conceptual, technical and methodological papers, as well as short communications are welcomed from a wide range of disciplines. This might include theoretical ecology, landscape ecology, restoration ecology, ecological modeling, ecological economics, ecosystem services, population genetics, land-use planning, conservation biology, wildlife management, environmental planning, monitoring, policy making and environmental education. The key criteria are that all submissions are focused on nature conservation and contribute relevant knowledge of general interest to the wider conservation community.
