Aims and scope

Biology Bulletin Reviews contains translations of review articles selected from two leading Russian biology journals: Uspekhi Sovremennoi Biologii and Zhurnal Obshchei Biologii.

The journal is a source of up-to-date and comprehensive information on the state and achievements of current biology, and covers a variety of biological disciplines including biogeography, botany, zoology, paleontology, embryology, taxonomy, evolutionary theory, physiology, and ecology. The journal also considers all aspects of adaptive mechanisms and strategies, problems of genetics and molecular biology, current taxonomy, ethology, and biomedical problems. The focus of the journal is general biological problems related to the organization and development of different life forms on the Earth. Although the journal is broad-scoped, it encourages publications dealing with biological macroobjects (organisms, populations, and communities), since these studies form the basis of general biological theories and concepts.
