Aims and scope
Mammalian Biology (formerly Zeitschrift für Säugetierkunde) is an international scientific journal edited by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Säugetierkunde (German Society for Mammalian Biology). The journal is devoted to the publication of research on mammals. Its scope covers all aspects of mammalian biology, such as anatomy, morphology, palaeontology, taxonomy, systematics, molecular biology, physiology, neurobiology, ethology, genetics, reproduction, development, evolutionary biology, domestication, ecology, wildlife biology and diseases, conservation biology, and the biology of zoo mammals.
Investigations using mammals merely as models or emphasizing experimental or veterinary aspects are of interest only if they are of substantial relevance to mammalogists.
Due to its wide range of topics, Mammalian Biology is primarily of interest to scientists working in the listed various fields of mammalogy but also to biologists and zoologists in general, as well as to veterinarians and medical scientists.
