Ecological Reviews

Ecological Reviews is a book series developed jointly by the BES and Cambridge University Press (CUP). We publish books at the cutting edge of modern ecology, providing a forum for current topics that are likely to be of long-term importance to the progress of the field. The books aim to set high international standards in ecological sciences.

Ecological Reviews

The series consists of edited, multi-author volumes and each volume provides a synthesis of understanding of a topic that has achieved a critical mass of knowledge in the past five to six years. Ecological Reviews includes commissioned volumes, as well as those arising from BES Symposia, and the series is intended to be a source of ideas and inspiration for ecologists at all levels – from graduate students to more established researchers and professionals.
