What people are saying about Conservation Physiology
“We really appreciate all of the time and effort that you and reviewers took in getting the manuscript through multiple revisions which helped us produce the paper we had at the end. We're also very happy with the final paper and were pleased by the entire editorial process too.”
Michelle Beck Ph.D., Virginia Tech
"Thank you for your efforts and congratulations on assembling such a high quality journal with an amazing turnaround time!"
Christopher Gobler Ph.D., Stony Brook University - School of Marine and Atmospheric Studies
“Conservation physiology is perhaps the most exciting new synergistic discipline in biology. It is addressing the scientific basis of some of the most pressing environmental problems in the world today. Biology, ecology and biodiversity research needs a mechanistic understanding of the problems organisms experience, and solutions they come up with, in the face of rapid global change.”
Dr. Martin Wikelski, Max Planck Institute in Germany
“The concept of a new journal on conservation physiology is an exciting prospect. As a plant/algal physiologist, I feel strongly that physiological information adds significantly to our ability to make decisions about ecology and conservation (something that I have been trying to convince my ecological colleagues about for years!).”
“I think that there is a vacant niche for a journal on conservation physiology, and that such a journal will be welcomed by the scientific community. So far, land use change has been considered to be the biggest threat to global biodiversity, because it has resulted in the reduction and fragmentation of suitable habitats for many species. Now the environmental conditions in the remaining natural habitat fragments are changing due to increasing atmospheric CO2 levels and climate change. How organisms will respond to these changes in environmental conditions will be largely determined by their physiological responses. Therefore, I foresee an increasing need to consider physiological aspects in conservation biology.”
Mark van Kleunen
"Conservation Physiology has arrived at the perfect time! It represents a journal that many scientists have been looking for that allows us to disseminate novel and important research focused on conservation, while incorporating the physiologic mechanisms relevant to interpreting how plant and animal populations maintain themselves. Much of this work in the past has been scattered across journals, making it difficult for conservation scientists to gain ready access to the work of others. In addition, the timely and constructive review process is much appreciated."
Dr. Mark A. Mitchell, Professor, Zoological Medicine, University of Illinois
