BMC Zoology is calling for submissions to our Collection on rewilding. In recent years, rewilding has gained increasing attention as a conservation strategy for restoring degraded ecosystems and promoting biodiversity. Numerous rewilding projects have been launched around the world with the aim of reintroducing animal species that have been lost or extirpated from an area and restoring natural processes and ecological interactions. Detailed information on the ecological roles, habitat requirements, social behavior, and interactions of animal species is crucial for the success of rewilding projects.
This Collection aims to collate research articles on rewilding projects with the goal of better understanding the framework needed to reach United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 14 (Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development) and 15 (Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss).
