1. What is BMC Ecology?


BMC Ecology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on environmental, behavioral and population ecology as well as biodiversity of plants, animals and microbes.

It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.

All articles are available online, and in addition the website offers many other services:

  • Quick and advanced search facilities.
  • RSS feed, to deliver our latest articles directly to your news headline reader.
  • Email articles directly to your friends and colleagues.
  • Post a comment on an article, to add your opinion.
