Founded in 1992, Biodiversity and Conservation is an international journal that publishes articles on all aspects of biological diversity, its conservation, and sustainable use. It is multidisciplinary and covers living organisms of all kinds in any habitat, focusing on studies using novel or little-used approaches, and ones from less studied biodiversity rich regions or habitats. It also features rapid assessment approaches, the estimation of species numbers and diversity (by traditional, molecular, or proxy indicator methods), habitat management, conservation policy and regulations, threats, biodiversity loss, extinctions, and the documenting of long-term changes, and ex-situ conservation.It includes reviews, research papers, editorials, commentaries, and letters, and sometimes whole issues devote to particular topics. Why publish with us International in scope and coverage, we are devoted to the publication of articles on all aspects of biological diversity and conservation, and publish 14 issues per year with full colour figures. With our renowned international editorial team overseeing a rigorous and swift review process, we encourage contributors from developing countries, in order to realize diverse global perspectives. It has an SJR impact factor of 0,954.

Biodiversity and Conservation focuses its scope in these topics and keywords: diversity, conservation, determinants, landscape, area, species, farmlandonline, environmental, ecosystem, ecology, ...
