Ecological Reviews

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.

Ecological Reviews, the BES book series published with Cambridge University Press (CUP), aims to set high international standards in ecological sciences. 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 years.

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.
