Aims and Scope: Evolutionary Ecology

Evolutionary Ecology seeks papers with a clear novelty. They should yield new insights into the effects of ecology on evolutionary processes and/or the effects of evolution on ecological processes. By ecology I mean the interactions between organisms and their environment. The best papers should pose a new and significant problem (with empirical evidence) and change the way people think about the topic of the paper.

The scope of the journal includes all organisms and systems, both living and fossil; it is not biased with respect to taxon or biome or time period.

The journal publishes original research, reviews and discussion papers dealing with evolutionary ecology in a broad sense. We also welcome special issues on emerging topics (please contact the editor with proposals).
