Aims and scope

The journal Folia Geobotanica publishes articles in vegetation science, plant ecology and plant systematics, including the topics of temporal community patterns, population and ecosystem ecology, and invasion and conservation ecology. Within the field of plant systematics, Folia Geobotanica welcomes papers on systematic and evolutionary botany, including phylogenetic reconstructions, phylogeographic and biogeographic inferences, studies of microevolutionary processes, taxonomic studies, and broader taxonomic revisions.

Apart from original research papers, which constitute the bulk of the journal, authors are invited to submit forum papers, opinion papers, review papers and technical reports on topics of broader interest.

Special issues on varied subjects in plant ecology and plant systematics, often following up on international conferences, are also prepared. An international editorial board and a thorough review process safeguard the quality of papers published.

History

The journal Folia Geobotanica was founded in 1966 (under the name Folia Geobotanica et Phytotaxonomica) by renowned botanists Slavomil Hejný and Jaroslav Moravec of the Institute of Botany of the Czech Academy of Sciences. Since 2008 it has been co-published with Springer.’
