Ecology for Agriculture
This forthcoming Special Issue of the series Sustainable Agriculture Reviews is a joined initiative of the Agricultural Ecology group of the British Ecological Society and the Ecology and Agriculture group of the Société Française d’Ecologie.
Aims and topics
For this special issue entitled Ecology for Agriculture we invite scientists to write high quality literature reviews that analyse current knowledge on challenges faced by agriculture from an ecological perspective.
Manuscripts should summarize recent knowledge on theoretical and applied ecology in agricultural ecosystems and landscapes. Subdisciplines may include community ecology, disturbances ecology, ecoevolution, ecotoxicology, ecological economics, socio-ecology, and political ecology. We welcome reviews on published assessments of farmland sustainability that incorporate biodiversity, ecological and ecosystem processes. We encourage manuscripts discussing the seriousness and rigour required for on-going debates, for instance ecological intensification and the transfer of knowledge to practitioners and policymakers.
Interdisciplinary articles that set agricultural ecology in a wider context are also welcome.
The submission deadline is December 1, 2016
