Insect Conservation and Diversity

Insect Conservation and Diversity will launch its first issue in 2008. The new journal will be published by Blackwell Publishing on behalf of the Royal Entomological Society. It will focus on wild arthropods (as opposed to agricultural or pest insects treated in Agricultural and Forest Entomology) and on explicit relations between arthropod conservation and diversity (as opposed to the general ecological emphasis found in Ecological Entomology).

Key topics will include Biogeography; Climate change (and its impacts on distributions and range); Conservation genetics; Global biodiversity; Integrating conservation science and policy; Long-term planning and implementation.

Publishing four issues per year, the journal will be edited by Simon R. Leather (Imperial College London, UK), Yves Basset (Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, Panama) and Bradford A. Hawkins (University of California, Irvine, USA). Online submission is available now through Manuscript Central (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/icdiv). The online manuscript submission and review process leads to faster decision times and greater simplicity for authors and reviewers. There are no page charges and articles are published online ahead of print (Online Early). For more information, please contact Yves Basset at: bassety@si.edu
