The subjects of biogeography, ecology and biodiversity are now of truly global importance. Recognizing this increased significance, the scope of the Journal of Biogeography and its sister publications, Global Ecology and Biogeography and Diversity and Distributions, continue to be developed under the guidance of Dr Robert Whittaker and Dr David Richardson respectively, acting as a team with Professor Philip Stott, the Editor of Journal of Biogeography. All three journals have wide coverage–from 'enhanced global warming' to the distribution of gadoid fishes, from invertebrate diversity in tropical rain forests to individualist species responses–so that all the key biogeographical and ecological questions of the day may be addressed. Topics include 'what is naturalness?', debates on both philosophy and methods, the implications of ecosystem fragmentation, the impact of human-induced changes, as well as the ecological and economic significance of biodiversity. All systematic groups are also embraced, from theory to practice, from plants to animals. Journal of Biogeography is essential reading for all environmentalists, biogeographers, ecologists, biologists, botanists and zoologists. JSTOR provides a digital archive of the print version of Journal of Biogeography. The electronic version of Journal of Biogeography is available at http://www.interscience.wiley.com.
