Journal for Nature Conservation

The Journal for Nature Conservation addresses the concepts, methods and techniques for nature conservation via research on the scientific theory and applied practice of conservation. This international and interdisciplinary journal offers a forum for the dissemination of nature conservation knowledge and innovative approaches relevant to the global conservation community. 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, including theoretical ecology, landscape ecology, restoration ecology, ecological modelling, and others, provided that there is a clear connection and immediate relevance to nature conservation.

Manuscripts without any immediate conservation context, such as inventories, distribution modelling, genetic studies, animal behaviour, plant physiology, will not be considered for this journal; though such data may be useful for conservationists and managers in the future, this is outside of the current scope of the journal.
