Click on Journal updates in the menu above and read the Editor-in-Chief’s Editorial describing the history and development of the journal and its subject area.
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.

Latest special issue:
Gračanica - diversity hotspot from the middle Miocene in the Bugojno Basin
This issue focusses on the middle Miocene fossil record from the Bugojno Basin, Bosnia-Herzegovina. The site, located in the Dinarides, marks an important spot on the route for terrestrial mammal migrations from Africa and Asia Minor into Europe.
