Conservation Letters: A journal of the Society for Conservation Biology is
an online-only scientific journal publishing empirical and theoretical
research with significant implications for the conservation of biological

The journal welcomes submissions across the biological and social sciences -
especially interdisciplinary submissions - that advance pragmatic
conservation goals as well as scientific understanding. Manuscripts will be
published on a rapid communications schedule and therefore should be current
and topical. Research articles should clearly articulate the significance
of their findings for conservation policy and practice.

Three types of article are published in Conservation Letters:

* Letters: novel findings with high relevance for practice or policy
* Mini-Reviews: overviews of emerging subjects that merit urgent coverage or
succinct syntheses of important topics that are rarely encountered in the
mainstream literature
* Policy Perspectives: brief essays for a general audience on issues related
to conservation and society.

Conservation Letters welcomes manuscripts in all biomes (marine,
terrestrial, and freshwater), ecosystems, and cultural settings, and will
strive for balanced coverage of each.
