Description: Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology publishes reviews, original contributions and commentaries dealing with quantitative empirical and theoretical studies in the analysis of animal behavior on the level of the individual, population and community. A new section, "Methods", considers submissions dealing with statistical procedures and their problems, as well as with problems related to measurement techniques.
Special emphasis is placed on the proximate mechanisms, ultimate functions and evolution of ecological adaptations of behavior.
Among aspects of particular interest are intraspecific behavioral interactions, with special focus on social behavior; interspecific behavioral mechanisms including competition and resource partitioning, mutualism, predator-prey interactions and parasitism; behavioral ecophysiology; orientation in space and time; and relevant evolutionary and functional theory.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been
combined with another title.
