Animal Biodiversity and Conservation
An international journal devoted to the study and conservation of animal biodiversity. Zoology has experienced in recent years many changes and specializations, and new disciplines have arosen, from Evolutionary Ecology to Molecular Systematics. Additionally, Conservation Biology is increasingly becoming a subject of main importance with a growing interest. To cope with the demands of modern zoologists, the Natural Science Museum of Barcelona decided in 2000 to change the title and structure of its former journal Miscel.lània Zoològica, published since 1958, to become the new Animal Biodiversity and Conservation. With this we intended to fullfil an empty space in Spanish journals, but also to provide zoologists with a proper international forum to publish their papers. The scope of the journal is wide, including descriptions of new species, and studies on systematics, morphology, biogeography, ecology, ethology, physiology and genetics, to some point stressing the relevance of the study to Conservation Biology. The journal publishes original research papers, reviews and comments on any aspect and level within this scope. The only restriction is that the journal do not publishes catalogues, lists of species (with no other relevance) or punctual records.
