Our scope

  • Our journal publishes articles in all fields of tropical biology and conservation.

  • Selection criteria are the amount of new information, quality and interest to a general readership..

  • Studies with a strong experimental design, prolongued field work, and taxonomic-systematics studies of whole groups are accepted. We particularly welcome uninvited reviews that summarize information in a particular field of tropical biology, explaining what is known and what needs to be studied in the future.
  • Notes, short communications, range extensions and new species reports are no longer accepted.

We consider manuscripts in all theoretical and applied fields of tropical biology and conservation, with a preference to in-depth studies of general interest, based on significant samples, a solid experimental design and a modern quantitative analysis. We particularly welcome uninvited reviews that summarize information in a particular field of tropical biology, explaining what is known and what needs to be studied in the future This journal is aimed at specialized personnel in the field of Biology and Conservation of tropical organisms and environments.

We do not publish studies that only add details or cases to previously known phenomena, preliminary studies, communications, species lists, notes or other short articles, or highly specialized reports of limited interest.

Selection criteria are the amount of new information, quality and interest to a general readership.
