All proposals within the journal’s scope will be considered. We’re particularly interested in the following topics: extreme weather events, aquatic ecology, community assembly and dynamics, community changes in response to climate change, long-term experiments, plant–insect interactions, ecophysiology of plant mortality and drought, trophic cascades & vegetation dynamics.
Your initial proposal should consist of a title & brief summary. If possible, please also provide a list of potential articles & contributors.
Full details on how to apply can be found here.
Please send your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 4th October (23:59 BST).
