Announcement by the owner and the publisher of Biological Theory

 The KLI Institute and Springer deeply regret the loss of the editor-in-chief of Biological Theory, Werner Callebaut. At the same time, to help ensure the continuity of the journal, it is our pleasure to announce that Stuart A. Newman has agreed to serve as the new editor-in-chief. Stuart is a theoretical and developmental biologist with knowledge of philosophy of biology, lingustics, bioethics, biomathematics, and computational biology, and he has served on the editorial board of Biological Theory since the journal’s founding. In the next issue's editorial, Stuart will present his views on the future of the journal. Also, with this issue we welcome Isabella Sarto-Jackson to the board of Associate Editors. Isabella is a geneticist and theoretician who has already done a good deal of work for the journal in the past.

 Gerd B. Müller (the KLI institute and Ties Nijssen (Springer)

Biological Theory is devoted to theoretical advances in the fields of evolution and cognition with an emphasis on the conceptual integration afforded by evolutionary and developmental approaches. The journal appeals to a wide audience of scientists, social scientists, and scholars from the humanities, particularly philosophers and historians of biology.
