Perspectives in Plant Ecology, Evolution and Systematics (PPEES) publishes outstanding and thought-provoking articles of general interest to an international readership in the fields of plant ecology, evolution and systematics. Of particular interest are longer, in-depth articles that provide a broad understanding of key topics in the field. There are six issues per year.

The following types of article will be considered:

  • Full length reviews,
  • Essay reviews,
  • Longer research articles,
  • Meta-analyses,
  • Foundational methodological or empirical papers from large consortia or long-term ecological research sites (LTER).

To maintain high scientific standards, manuscripts are submitted to two or more reviewers for evaluation of their scientific soundness and significance. Authors will be generally notified of acceptance, rejection, or need for revision of their manuscripts within three months.

Biological flora series (monographs of model species)
PPEES is particularly interested in contributions to the knowledge of species that are flagship species for conservation, invasive species of particular concern, or species that are frequently used as models in ecological research. Prospective authors should contact the editorial office of PPEES before starting to write a contribution and enquire whether their planned manuscript would be of interest to PPEES.

For more information on the aims and scope of PPEES please read the editorial published in Volume 14, Issue 1, 2012.
