In a bid to increase awareness of sustainable management and development of the world’s forests, the UN has declared 2011 as the International Year of Forests. To mark this occasion, BMC Ecology and Carbon Balance and Management are co-publishing a thematic series entitled ‘Forests: Looking to the Future’ to showcase the latest forestry research and published content in both journals.
For the series we will consider manuscripts on topics ranging from carbon cycling and climate change, to deforestation and long term reforestation strategies. We would like to welcome original research, reviews, database, methodology, and software articles that address these topics. The series will be presented on its own dedicated webpage.
The deadline for submissions is the 14th August and so please do submit your manuscript to one of these journals using their respective online submission systems, and indicate that you wish to be considered for the series in your covering letter. For guidelines on formatting your manuscript for submission, please refer to the instructions for authors and for any questions regarding the thematic series or the journals please do contact us.
This thematic series promises to be an interesting and timely collection to coincide with the the UN Year of Forests and we look forward to receiving your manuscripts.
