Ecology & Environment

Ecology & Environment, a journal for science and environmental policy, addresses current environmental issues, cutting edge research and professional work in Israel. Issued 4 times a year, the journal consists of peer-reviewed research, communications and scientific reviews. Additional features include scientific and professional news, multi-stakeholder debates, opinion columns, commentary and more.

Ecology & Environment brings a unique interdisciplinary approach and sets the stage for broad public discussion between scientists, practitioners, and decision makers. It is an especially valuable asset for resource managers, environmental consultants, ecologists, environmental and social scientists from diverse disciplines as well as policy makers, environmental NGOs, activists and students.
