American Midland Naturalist

The American Midland Naturalist was founded in 1909 by Reverend Julius A.
Nieuwland, C.S.C., and has been published since by the University of Notre
Dame. It is a refereed, broad-spectrum journal publishing basic research in
diverse disciplines in biology and varied taxa. The historic name is no
longer precisely descriptive, as it includes materials from all of North
America and, occasionally, from other areas. An editorial survey identified
major topics, as are evident in its list of associate editors, for animal,
vegetation and plant population in ecology, animal behavior, herpetology,
ornithology, aquatic ecology, parasitology, ichthyology, plant physiology
and biological statistics. Articles include field and laboratory studies of
life history, distribution, growth, reproduction, behavior, physiology,
diet, habitat and myriad other topics of interest to biologists.
Approximately one-fourth of the articles published in the American Midland
Naturalist are experimental. It is among the most frequently cited journals
in publications as diverse as Ecology and Oecologia, Journal of Mammalogy,
Herpetologia, Copeia, Journal of Parasitology, Hydrobiologia, Journal of
Wildlife Management and numerous others. Its history has been described in
The American Midland Naturalist: The Life History of a Journal. American
Midland Naturalist, 123:1-31, 1990.

Back issues of the American Midland Naturalist, excluding the most recent
three years, are available online through JSTOR- a full text archive of the
