Aims and scope
Ecological Processes is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal devoted to quality publications in ecological studies with a focus on the underlying processes responsible for the dynamics and functions of ecological systems at multiple spatial and temporal scales. The journal welcomes manuscripts on techniques, approaches, concepts, models, reviews, syntheses, short communications and applied research for advancing our knowledge and capability toward sustainability of ecosystems and the environment. Integrations of ecological and socio-economic processes are strongly encouraged.
