  • CALL FOR PAPERS: Toward a Science of Scaling in Landscape Ecology

    Submission Deadline: May 31, 2021 | Expected 2022

    We invite papers that address this key need to develop general ‘rules of thumb’ and specific techniques for scaling information across scales in space and time, translating knowledge across organizational levels, and extrapolating experimental results to real-world systems. We encourage submissions that develop new techniques for prediction and extend theories that have been established in other fields such as physics and biology. We also encourage review and perspective papers. We will put less weight on submissions that simply examine the impact of different spatial scales on patterns or processes. Students and Early Career Researchers are especially encouraged to submit one of these article types.

    Land-use legacies and forest change: understanding the past to forecast the future

    Issue editors: Matteo Garbarino & Peter J. Weisberg

    The importance of land-use legacies for shaping contemporary landscape patterns and processes and for informing landscape management has been widely recognized for at least two decades (Bürgi et al. 2017; Foster et al. 2003), although research on the topic has accelerated dramatically in recent years.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
