Aims & Scope

The scope of Wildlife Biology

WILDLIFE BIOLOGY is a high-quality scientific forum directing concise and up-to-date knowledge to scientists, administrators, wildlife managers and conservationists. The journal encourages and welcomes original papers, short communications and review papers written in English from throughout the world. The journal accepts theoretical, empirical, and practical manuscripts of high standard from all areas of wildlife science, including human dimensions of wildlife, with the primary task of creating the scientific basis for the enhancement of wildlife management and conservation.

WILDLIFE BIOLOGY adopts a broad concept of wildlife management, including all policies and actions with the purpose of conservation, sustainable use, or control of wildlife and its habitats, in order to safeguard sustainable relationships between wildlife and other human interests. We have a broad concept of 'wildlife' and studies of mammals, birds and other taxa or phenomena relevant to wildlife issues are all of great interest.
