Theoretical Ecology publishes innovative research in theoretical ecology, including ecophysiology, population ecology, behavioral ecology, evolutionary ecology, ecosystem ecology, community ecology, and ecosystem and landscape ecology. The editors emphasize work that bridges disciplinary boundaries, such as the intersection between quantitative social sciences and ecology, or physical influences on ecological processes.

The contents include regular articles, review papers, and rapid communications. Review papers will be published after a thorough review process; please contact the reviews editor before submission. Theoretical Ecology also offers a rapid communications option for short manuscripts of unusually broad interest to the ecological community.
