Wildlife Research provides an international forum for the publication of original and significant research and debate on the ecology and management of wild animals in natural and modified habitats. The journal combines basic research in wildlife ecology with advances in science-based management practice. It has a broad scope ranging from the management of pest and invasive wildlife through to the conservation of threatened species. Readers can expect a range of papers covering well-structured field studies, manipulative experiments, and analytical and modelling studies. All papers aim to improve the practice of wildlife management and contribute conceptual advances to our knowledge and understanding of wildlife ecology.
As well as original research papers, the journal publishes: reviews that offer new insights or timely syntheses of current topics in wildlife management; viewpoint articles highlighting contentious or emerging issues and their implications for wildlife management, conservation, research or policy development; and methods papers that describe and evaluate methodological advances and new techniques in wildlife management and conservation.
Wildlife Research encourages submission of papers on all major themes of wildlife ecology, management and conservation:
Wildlife Research is a vital resource for wildlife scientists, students and managers, applied ecologists, conservation biologists, environmental consultants and NGOs and government policy advisors.
