Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments is an international journal providing a multidisciplinary approach in the fields of Palaeobiodiversity, Palaeoenvironments, and Palaeobiogeography in Earth History. It is a relaunch of the well-known "Senckenbergiana lethaea" and incorporates peer-reviewed original research, review papers and short notes spanning a broad scope of subject matter. Its principal fields of interest are biodiversity of fossil organisms and their palaeoenvironment, comparison of modern and ancient sedimentary environments, palaeoecology, and palaeobiogeography.
Coverage includes systematic studies of all fossil animal / plant groups with a special focus on palaeoenvironmental investigations; palaeoecosystems and climate changes in Earth's history; environment-organism interaction; comparison of modern and ancient sedimentary environments; palaeoecology and palaeobiogeography.
