Ecological Economics

http://www.elsevier.com/inca/publications/store/5/0/3/3/0/5/index.htt

The journal is concerned with extending and integrating the study and
management of "nature's household" (ecology) and "humankind's household"
(economics). This integration is necessary because conceptual and
professional isolation have led to economic and environmental policies
which are mutually destructive rather than reinforcing in the long term.
The journal is transdisciplinary in spirit and methodologically open.

Specific research areas covered include: valuation of natural resources,
sustainable agriculture and development, ecologically integrated
technology, integrated ecologic-economic modelling at scales from local to
regional to global, implications of thermodynamics for economics and
ecology, renewable resource management and conservation, critical
assessments of the basic assumptions underlying current economic and
ecological paradigms and the implications of alternative assumptions,
economic and ecological consequences of genetically engineered organisms,
and gene pool inventory and management, alternative principles for valuing
natural wealth, integrating natural resources and environmental services
into national income and wealth accounts, methods of implementing efficient
environmental policies, case studies of economic-ecologic conflict or
harmony, etc. New issues in this area are rapidly emerging and will find a
ready forum in Ecological Economics.

-Ecological Economics Sections

All submissions to Ecological Economics are reviewed using the general
criteria of quality, creativity, originality, accuracy, and contribution to
the field. There are several categories of articles to allow for a full
range of constructive dialogue.

-News and Views

Topical and timely short pieces reviewed by the editor and/or one outside
reviewer at the editor's discretion. May include editorials, letters to the
editor, news items, and policy discussions. Maximum 1500 words (600 words
for letters).

-Commentary

Essays discussing critical issues. Reviewed by three outside reviewers with
the criteria weighted toward quality of the exposition and importance of
the issue. Maximum 5000 words.

-Surveys

Examination and review of important general subject areas. Reviewed by
three outside reviewers with the criteria weighted toward importance of the
subject and clarity of exposition. Maximum 8000 words.

-Methodological and Ideological Options

Research articles devoted to developing new methodologies or investigating
the implications of various ideological assumptions. Reviewed by three
outside reviewers with criteria weighted toward originality and potential
usefulness of the methodology or ideological option. Maximum 8000 words.

-Analysis

Research articles devoted to analysis of important questions in the field.
Reviewed by three outside reviewers with the criteria weighted toward
originality, quality, and accuracy of the analysis, and importance of the
question. Maximum 8000 words.

-Book Reviews

Reviews of recent books in the field. Reviewed by one outside reviewer with
criteria weighted toward clarity and accuracy of the review, and importance
of the book to the field. Maximum 1200 words.

Audience: Ecologists, Economists, Biologists, Nature Conservationists.

Abstracts are available in HTML format without a subscription.

Ecological Engineering

http://www.elsevier.com/inca/publications/store/5/2/2/7/5/1/index.htt

The journal is meant for ecologists who, because of their research
interests or occupation, are involved in designing, monitoring, or
constructing ecosystems. It is meant to serve as a bridge between
ecologists and engineers, as ecotechnology is not wholly defined by either
field. The journal will be read and contributed to by applied ecologists,
environmental scientists and managers and regulators, natural resource
specialists (e.g. foresters, fish and wildlife specialists), environmental
and civil engineers, agroecologists, and landscape planners and designers.
The journal is also for engineers who, as a result of training and/or
experience in biological and/or ecological sciences, are involved in
designing and building ecosystems. The journal is of particular interest to
practising environmental managers due to its multidisciplinary approach to
practical problems and opportunities.

Ecological engineering has been defined as the design of ecosystems for the
mutual benefit of humans and nature. Specific topics covered in the journal
include: ecotechnology; synthetic ecology; bioengineering; sustainable
agroecology; habitat reconstruction; restoration ecology; ecosystem
conservation; ecosystem rehabilitation; stream and river restoration;
wetland restoration and construction; reclamation ecology; non-renewable
resource conservation. Applications of ecological engineering (or
ecotechnology) include wetland creation and restoration, pollution control
by ecosystems, restoration and rehabilitation of forests, grasslands,
lakes, reservoirs and rivers, and development of sustainable
agroecosystems. Because ecological engineering is based on the premise of
conserving both renewable and non-renewable resources by using both in
partnership, the journal will also be pertinent to those involved in global
change, alternative energy policies, ecological economics, environmental
conservation, and global geopolitics.

Audience: Biologists, Applied Ecologists, Environmental Scientists, Civil
Engineers, Agroecologists, Landscape Planners.

Ecological Modelling

http://www.elsevier.com/inca/publications/store/5/0/3/3/0/6/index.htt

The journal is concerned with the use of mathematical models and systems
analysis for the description of ecosystems and for the control of
environmental pollution and management of resources. It combines
mathematical modelling, systems analysis, thermodynamics and computer
techniques with ecology and management of the environment and its natural
resources. When man intrudes he inevitably disturbs the delicate balance of
organisms, substances and their activity, that Nature has evolved.
Ecosystems can adapt to man's violent activities, but only up to a certain
point. The impact on ecosystems can only be described quantitatively by the
application of ecological models and systems ecology, and their reactions
to perturbations can only be understood by the use of ecosystem theory. The
fields of ecological modelling, systems ecology and ecosystem theory are
consequently the basis of the philosophy behind the journal.

Audience: Biologists, Engineers, Ecologists, Economists and Operations
Research Scientists who develop and use ecological models.
