Restoration Ecology fosters the exchange of ideas among the many disciplines involved in the process of ecological restoration. Addressing global concerns and communicating them to the international scientific community, the journal is at the forefront of a vital new direction in science and ecology. Original papers describe experimental, observational, and theoretical studies on terrestrial, marine, and freshwater systems, and are considered without taxonomic bias.

Ecological Restoration is a quarterly publication that provides a forum for people interested in all aspects of ecological restoration. Supported by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum and edited by members of its staff, Ecological Restoration offers original feature articles, short notes, and book reviews as well as abstracts of related work from other environmental and ecological publications. In addition to coverage of the technical and scientific aspects of ecological restoration, Ecological Restoration publishes original articles about ecological restoration and its implications for reestablishing the link between post-modern humans and the environment.

Ecological Management and Restoration aims to bridge the gap between the ecologist’s perspective and field manager’s experience. Publishing peer-reviewed articles, technical reports, news items, reviews and letters on the science and practice of ecosystem restoration and management, this innovative journal combines a highly readable style with scientifically credible material. Ecological Management and Restoration answers the growing need among land managers for reliable, relevant information and acknowledges the need for two-way communication in devising new hypotheses, sound experimentation, effective treatments and reliable monitoring.

Conservation is a sophisticated, readable, and utterly practical magazine for people who are serious about conservation—managers, policymakers, researchers, students, advocates, and funders. Conservation in Practice is supported by some of the most influential organizations in the field. The Society for Conservation Biology along with these partners has invested in this unique magazine to create a forum for frank conversations—one that goes beyond the boundaries of individual organizations and disciplines.

Ecological Applications is a publication of the Ecological Society of America. It contains ecological research and discussion papers that develop the basic scientific principles on which environmental decision-making should rest, and those that discuss the application of ecological concepts to environmental problem solving, policy, and management.

Ecological Economics (The Transdisciplinary Journal of the International Society for Ecological Economics) is concerned with extending and integrating the study and management of “nature’s household” (ecology) and “humankind’s household” (economics). This integration is necessary because conceptual and professional isolation have led to economic and environmental policies which are mutually destructive rather than reinforcing in the long term.

Ecological Engineering (The Journal of Ecosystem Restoration) is meant for ecologists who, because of their research interests or occupation, are involved in designing, monitoring, or constructing ecosystems. It is meant to serve as a bridge between ecologists and engineers, as ecotechnology is not wholly defined by either field – a multidisciplinary approach to practical problems and opportunities.
