    The Belgian Journal of Botany is the official journal of the Royal Botanical Society of Belgium. It was first published in 1862 (at that time as the 'Bulletins de la Société Royale de Botanique de Belgique'). From 1990 on, it has been published under its present name. It appears in one volume of two issues per year.

    The Belgian Journal of Botany is an international journal, open to all fields of plant sciences. Please note, however, that papers restricted to purely nomenclatural matters or to floristical data of only local interest will not be accepted. The Belgian Journal of Botany publishes reviews and invited reviews, original research papers, short notes, letters to the editor, and book reviews. Short notes are meant to report findings that, although interesting, do not warrant full coverage in the form of a regular paper. Letters are meant to be a forum for Botanists, in particular for the members of the Society.

    English is the preferred language of the journal, although papers written in one of Belgium's three national languages (Dutch, French, and German) may be accepted (especially letters).

One may think, for instance, of methods for analyzing the basic molecular units of heredity; of proposals and clarifications of the appropriate methods of classifying organisms; of exciting new ideas about the nature of the fossil record and their implications for the elucidation of evolutionary mechanisms; and of ways in which the biological study of behavior has been extended, theoretically and experimentally, and of supposed implications for humankind. To add to these internal issues, the outside world has also seen much debate on biology - in the world of education, for instance.
    These and other issues have made biology one of the most exhilarating areas of science, and have aroused in biologists and philosophers an awareness that there is a need for meta-theoretical analysis, both about the very nature of biology, as well as about its social implications.
    Biology and Philosophy is aimed at a broad readership, drawn from both the sciences and the humanities. The journal subscribes to no specific school of biology, nor of philosophy, and publishes work from authors of all persuasions and all disciplines. The editorial board reflects this attitude in its composition and its world-wide membership.

  • Botanica Marina

    The journal publishes contributions from all of the disciplines of marine botany at all levels of biological organisation from subcellular to ecosystem.

    Subject areas are: marine algal and marine angiosperm systematics, floristics, biogeography, biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, chemistry, industrial processes and utilisation; marine mycology and marine microbiology. Original knowledge is disseminated to provide synopses of global or interdisciplinary interest, and to stress aspects of utilisation. Applied science papers are especially welcome, when they illustrate the application of emerging conceptual issues or promote developing technologies.

    Checklists or equivalent manuscripts may be considered for publication only if they contribute new information on taxonomy (e.g., new combinations), ecology or biogeography of more than just local relevance. Checklists should be focused to highlight original information.

    Conservation International’s Rapid Assessment Program (RAP) was created in 1990 to address the lack of biological information needed to make quick but sound conservation decisions. RAP deploys teams of international and host-country expert scientists to conduct rapid first-cut assessments of the biological value of selected areas. RAP surveys generally last 3 – 4 weeks. Preliminary results are made available immediately to local and international decision makers through reports and on the Internet. RAP data are then analyzed in tandem with social, economic, and other ecosystem information to develop a comprehensive conservation strategy.

  • Entomologia y Vectores

    Field of Interest: It is dedicated to the field of Entomology and Acarology, with emphasis to the study of vectors, related to human and animal (veterinary) diseases, insect pests of cultivated plants and/or of economic interest, including related subjects such as Geography and Climatology applied to Entomology. Articles on history of Entomology, including biographies of distinguished entomologists are also published. Historic Background: The journal Entomologia y Vectores was born in Argentina in 1994 by the altruistic efforts of two researchers: Rodolfo U. Carcavallo from Argentina and Itamar Galindez-Girón from Venezuela who turned out the journal international. With financial support of Universidad de Los Andes (Venezuela) and CiBIOM-CONICET of Argentina, number nº1 of volume nº1 of the journal was edited in February of 1994, including articles about vectors of Chagas Disease, dealing with biology, morphology and taxonomy, including the description of a new species of Triatoma. It was created with the purpose of publishing information on the arthropod vectors involved in pathologies, including aspects of taxonomy, physiology, morphology, ecology, etiology, geographic distribution, genetics, control and history of Entomology. Particular attention was given to subjects that have to do with population dynamics of pests and diseases taking into account evident climate global changes, a subject rarely considered in other journals that deal with Entomology.

  • Insect Systematics and Evolution Insect Systematics & Evolution was founded in 1970 as Entomologica Scandinavica (hereafter ES) on the initiative of the Natural Science Research Councils of the Nordic countries. Initially, the purpose of the new journal was to accommodate research papers in entomology mainly written by Scandinavians in English, French or German and directed to the international entomological community. The intention was to strengthen the international profile of Nordic entomology, but also to make the existing national entomological journals more attractive to the members of the national entomological societies by focusing on local faunistics etc. After a decade or so, it was decided that ES should no longer publish papers dealing with ecology and faunistics, but concentrate on systematic entomology without geographical preferences. Initially, contributions from Scandinavian authors dominated the contents of ES, but this has changed significantly during the last 20 years.

    In year 2000, starting with vol. 31, the name of the journal was changed to Insect Systematics & Evolution. The name change sprung from a desire to emphasize the importance of modern systematic entomology in evolutionary biology. This is reflected in the increasing number of papers published in the journal incorporating phylogenetic reconstruction from molecular as well as morphological characters. High-standard, comprehensive taxonomic revisions and monographs will continue to appear in Insect Systematics & Evolution, as well as papers applying comparative morphology, biogeography or ecological data to systematic or evolutionary problems. Traditionally, entomology in Scandinavia includes other terrestrial arthropods than insects, such as spiders (Araneae), harvestmen (Opiliones), mites (Acari), centipedes (Chilopoda), and millipedes (Diplopoda). The journal will continue to welcome contributions on all groups of insects and other terrestrial arthropods, living as well as extinct, without any geographical preference.

  • Journal of Afrotropical Zoology (JAZ)

    The Journal of Afrotropical Zoology continuing the sub-series 'Miscellanea' within the main series formerly entitled ‘Annalen van het museum voor Midden-Afrika (serie Zoölogie) - Annales du Musée royal de l’Afrique Centrale (série Zoologie)’.

    This impressive series had two main formats: in-4° and in-8°. The former, which is a large format, started in 1889 with a series of volumes on African fishes by Boulenger, the last publication appearing in 1966.
    The first volume of the smaller format series was published in 1948, the last publication of which appeared as recently as 2003. Whereas the series was in principle devoted to monographs on the Afrotropical fauna, several volumes, including the last one (vol. 291), contained a number of smaller articles.

    These journal type volumes, entitled ‘Miscellanea’, replaced the Journal of African Zoology, a periodical that was started in 1911 as a private initiative by H. Schouteden, who became director of the ‘Musée du Congo Belge’ in 1927. Initially the journal was called Revue de Zoologie africaine. It changed names several times and between 1927 (vol. 17) and 1974 (vol. 88), it bore the name Revue de Zoologie et Botanique africaines. In 1987, the then editor in chief, P. Basilewski, changed it again to Revue de Zoologie africaine. H. André, the third and last editor, made it bilingual (Revue de Zoologie africaine – Journal of African Zoology) in 1988 and finally dropped the French part to give it its final title Journal of African Zoology in 1994. The journal was discontinued in 1996 after 110 volumes.

    The Revue de Zoologie africaine had been an important outlet for contributions on the Afrotropical fauna, mainly from collaborators of the Royal Museum for Central Africa (RMCA), and its discontinuation left a serious gap. The recent actualization of the RMCA publications provided an ideal opportunity to fill this gap by launching the present Journal of Afrotropical Zoology

    The Journal of Afrotropical Zoology is obviously devoted to the biology of animals living in the tropical part of Africa, including the islands with that climatic regime but excluding the area north of the Sahara. Although the divide between the Afrotropical and the Palaearctic realms is not clear-cut, it is common knowledge that it lies somewhere near the Tropic of Cancer (23°30’N), although some of the mountain areas south of it may contain Palaerctic elements and vice versa for more northern ranges. To the south, the entirety of Africa is included, although the southern tip of the continent is known to have a temperate climate. However, there is no clear zoological boundary between tropical and southern temperate and it is generally accepted that the Afrotropical realm includes all of South Africa.

  • Lundiana Lundiana: International Journal of Biodiversity. The taxonomical collections committee from the Institute of Biological Sciences at Federal University of Minas Gerais is devoted to integrating and divulging the knowledge on Brazilian biodiversity. For this reason, the members of the committee are investing on several activities. Among these, one we have special appreciation for is the edition of a scientific journal called “Lundiana”. This name is a homage to a Danish naturalist who lived in Minas Gerais state devoting his life to botany, zoology and, especially, to palaeontology. This journal was created two decades ago by the Department of Zoology and had only two issues published. Today, as a journal for the study of biodiversity on its several perspectives (Biogeography, Conservation, Ecology, Evolution and Taxonomy) mainly from the Neotropical region, the committee wants this to be, not just an institutional journal, but also a vehicle for the scientific community at large.

  • Mammalian Biology Mammalian Biology ( formerly Zeitschrift für Säugetierkunde) is an international scientific journal edited by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Säugetierkunde (German Society for Mammalogy).

    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, faunistics, wildlife biology, conservation biology, and the biology of zoo mammals. To qualify for publication, a manuscript must contribute to the understanding of mammalian biology by presenting either new and original research data (as a full article or in short communication format) or a thorough review of a particular topic of mammalogical research. Investigations using mammals merely as models or emphasizing experimental or veterinary aspects are of interest if they are of substantial relevance to mammalogists. Contributions may be written in German or English. In view of the international readership of the journal English is preferred. At present, one volume consisting of six issues is published each year.

    Due to its wide range of topics, Mammalian Biology is primarily of interest to scientists working on the listed various fields of mammalogy but also for biologists and zoologists in general as well as to veterinarians and medical scientists.

  • Raffles Bulletin of Zoology The Raffles Bulletin of Zoology (RBZ) is a peer-reviewed journal, which rapidly publishes high quality papers in Taxonomy, Ecology and Conservation Biology of animals from Southeast Asia and its adjacent areas.  The journal aims to build up quality information on the “animal diversity” of Southeast Asia in particular.  The journal will also publish papers from outside the stated geographic range that deal with material deposited in the Zoological Reference Collection (ZRC) of the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research (RMBR), National University of Singapore. Both descriptive and experimental papers will be considered.  Similarly, both single species and ecosystem studies will be considered for publication.  Manuscripts that are checklists or based on new records will no longer be accepted unless they are of significant scientific value. Papers outside the stated policy and new records of animals will only be accepted at the discretion of the Editors/Editorial Board.

    The Raffles Bulletin of Zoology will consist of a single volume (two issues) each year, continuing the sequence of its two predecessors, Bulletin of the Raffles Museum (1928-1960) and Bulletin of the National Museum of Singapore (1961-1970).  A separately numbered supplement series will be published as and when manuscripts and funding permits.  From 2005, the RBZ will be converted to an online publication.  As such, very few hardcopies will be printed and papers published in the RBZ will be circulated as PDF files.  Papers published in the RBZ will be available for downloading via the RBZ website for research purposes.

  • Senckenbergiana Biologica

    Senckenbergiana Biologica is an international Journal of Zoology and Botany, published by Senckenberg Natural History Society with contributions on zoologie and botany from all biogeographic realms.

    Papers published in Senckenbergiana biologica aim to describe, study and understand biodiversity.

    Publication areas of special interest to Senck. biol. include:

    biodiversity, taxonomy, systematics, phylogeny, nomenclature, biogeography, morphology, anatomy, biology tropical ecology (and other aspects of ecology), behavioral ecology, animal associations and coevolution.

    Results of purely physiological, faunistic or floristic studies without general biogeographical or systematic importance are outside the scope of the journal.

    Senckenbergiana biologica only covers accepts contributions on recent animals and plants, contributions on fossil organisms are generally not accepted, unless there is a direct connection to recent animals (e.g. a direct comparison of relatively recent fossils with their recent relatives).

  • Visual Key Visual Key is a cross-platform, interactive, rich-graphic web application for identification of organisms. It has been written as an alternative to similar web and standalone platform-dependent applications. The major difference between such programs and Visual Key, that the latter uses character maps that allow acquiring and describing characters directly from the image of an organism. Since the goal of the project was to create a program that does not assume any previous knowledge of a user about data or principles of interactive idenifications, some other features are not implemented.

     Visual Key is a client-side program that uses objects and the language already predefined in major browsers, and therefore it is small, relatively fast, and cross-platform. Once downloaded it will work even without internet connection.

     The program handles data matrices in the Nexus format and supports inapplicable, missing, multistate, and polymorphic characters. Visual Key can generate descriptions of given taxa at any time during identification.
