Animal Conservation

Animal Conservation provides a forum for rapid publication of novel, peer-reviewed research into the conservation of animal species and their habitats.

A central theme is to publish quantitative studies detailing important new ideas and findings that have general implications for the scientific basis of conservation.

Covering a wide range of subjects including biodiversity, population biology, epidemiology, evolutionary ecology, population genetics, biogeography, palaeobiology and conservation economics, Animal Conservation is essential reading for conservation biologists, policy-makers and students.
