  • Contemporary Problems of Ecology provides an indispensable source of knowledge and guidance to researches in academia and industry. It deserves a place on the library shelves of every academic institute and university with departments of ecology, geography, biology and earth sciences, as well as industrial organizations with environmental protection departments.

The journal is a translation of Sibirskiy Ekologicheskiy Zhurnal (Siberian Journal of Ecology), which was launched in 1994. It is a multidisciplinary periodical which publishes original work on the following subjects: theoretical and methodological issues of ecology, regional aspects of ecology, regional environmental disasters, structure and functioning of ecosystems, and anthropogenic transformation of ecosystems. The journal differs from others in that it covers a wide range of ecological problems. All basic aspects of modern ecology, including the most complicated interactions between living organisms and their environment, are presented. It publishes special issues dedicated to the global changes in biological diversity at various levels (populations, species, and ecosystems) and factors affecting them, principles and methods of rational environmental management. The journal is not limited to environmental problems of Siberia and offers materials of general scientific interest.
