New publishing platform for Ecology and Transportation
The first international and cross-disciplinary publishing platform for Ecology and Transportation is now established with Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution.
This calls for intensified collaboration between research and practice, for the development of effective mitigation approaches and better decision-support. To promote this, IENE has together with ANET, ICOET and CIBIV, initiated a joint platform for scientific publication on Ecology and Transportation. This platform is hosted by the community-rooted open-access publisher Frontiers.
Transportation and infrastructure are significant drivers of the global loss of biodiversity. Their impact on nature is increasingly recognized. The need for effective mitigation is eminent, given the massive expansion of infrastructure that is anticipated at global level for the near future.
The first research topic was launched in Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution, in the section Urban Ecology in September 2016. It will be the first in a series of topics, featuring the upcoming conferences and their specific themes. However, we welcome and encourage the submission of manuscripts on transportation and ecological questions not presented at either conference.
