Biology-Botany

Only article written in ENGLISH, and the Authors should send a Statement that the Article was revised by a specialist in English Grammar.

"Manuscripts with agronomic subjects are expected to contain a substantial amount of basic plant biology. Merely agricultural approaches will not be considered for publication."

CeN-Ecology publishes papers on basic and applied ecology. Ecology, by definition, is the study of interactions between living organisms and the environment. The journal is focused on ecological questions, and tangent studies will not be considered. Studies on physiological responses of organisms to their abiotic environments, evolutionary ecology, population and communities structure and dynamics, intra- and interspecific interactions, ethology, landscape ecology, and ecosystems processes and services are common examples within the scope of CeN-Ecology. Studies that are not purely ecological, but that still retain a clean relationship with ecology can be considered (e.g. agroecology). In order to ensure an accurate process of peer review, the authors are encouraged to submit the study data along with their manuscript.
