Basic and Applied Ecology provides a forum in which ecological advances and ideas can be rapidly communicated to a wide audience. Basic and Applied Ecology publishes Reviews, Perspectives and Original Contributions from all areas of ecology, complemented by Invited Views, Comments and Special Issues. Ecologists from all countries are invited to publish ecological research of general ecological and international interest on its pages, as there is no bias with regard to taxon or geographical area.
Papers in Basic and Applied Ecology include topical research in areas such as biodiversity and associated functions and services, response to global change across latitudes as well as multitrophic interactions. New project designs and methods are also welcome. The main research areas covered by Basic and Applied Ecology are Conservation Ecology, Applied Ecology, Community and Population Ecology, Landscape and Ecosystem Ecology, and Functional Ecology, but contributions from other fields will also be considered. Basic and Applied Ecology actively solicits papers that strive to integrate the various disciplines and issues within the broad field of ecology.
Basic and Applied Ecology published its first volumes in 2000 and is the official journal of the "Gesellschaft für Ökologie", the Ecological Society of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. For members of the "Gesellschaft für Ökologie" free access to the online version of Basic and Applied Ecology (BAAE) is included in their membership fee (75 Euro per year).
