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, prolonged field work, and taxonomic-systematics studies of whole groups are considered.


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