Ecology

Editor in Chief | Editorial Board | Articles and Contributors | Graduate Award

Oxford Bibliographies in Ecology is an extensive, annotated bibliography of the most important concepts and ideas in the discipline. Ecology is a wide-ranging field that has its roots in the observations and writings of the early plant geographers, including of course Charles Darwin. As ecology has developed it has drawn from classical ‘hard sciences’ such as chemistry and physics, but has its own unique identity and today brings in modern aspects of many other disciplines including other areas of the life sciences, and geography, mathematics, computing and statistics. Ecology itself forms the underpinning of Environmental Science. And so, ecology has much to offer. For Oxford Bibliographies in Ecology, topics from all the relevant areas have been selected; these include articles on autoecology, population, community, and ecosystem ecology, the main biomes of the world, as well as articles related to the synthesis of ecology with other disciplines including human ecology, agroecology, and chemical ecology, for example.

 

Editor in Chief

David Gibson PhD, Fellow Society of Biology, is professor of plant biology and University Distinguished Scholar at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale.

GRADUATE STUDENT ARTICLE AWARD

The Oxford Bibliographies Graduate Student Article Award is an annual, invitation-only award that offers experienced doctoral candidates an opportunity to contribute to Oxford Bibliographies in Ecology, to draw attention to their work, and to add a peer-reviewed publication to their CVs. Invitation is by faculty nomination only. Nominations are now being accepted.

“Graduate students are by necessity deeply and critically engaged in the literature within emerging areas of research. This knowledge puts them in an ideal position to write for Oxford Bibliographies. I am particularly excited about the potential of this award as a pathway to including articles on cutting-edge topics, and I think it is an important acknowledgement of the significant contribution graduate students routinely make to the production of new scholarship.”

--Damon Zucca, Reference and Online Publisher, Oxford University Press

We want to hear from you.
Oxford Bibliographies is a partnership between the publisher and the academic community, and we invite you to participate. Please feel welcome to email Allan Graubard, our subject editor, with comments, suggestions, or questions.
