Environmental Conservation is one of the longest-standing, most highly-cited of the interdisciplinary environmental science journals. It includes research papers, reports, comments and subject reviews addressing environmental natural and social science, and environmental policy and practice, informed by rigorous studies at local to global scales. The journal's scope is very broad, including issues in human institutions, ecosystem change, resource utilisation, terrestrial biomes, aquatic and marine systems, and coastal and land use management. Environmental Conservation is essential reading for all environmentalists, managers, consultants, agency workers and scientists wishing to keep abreast of current developments in environmental science. Papers selected as Editor's Choice are made freely available online.
