Description: The subjects of biogeography, ecology and biodiversity are now of truly global
importance. Recognizing this increased significance, the scope of the Journal
of Biogeography and its sister publications, Global Ecology and
Biogeography and Diversity and Distributions, continue to
be developed under the guidance of Dr Robert Whittaker and Dr David Richardson
respectively, acting as a team with Professor Philip Stott, the Editor of Journal
of Biogeography. All three journals have wide coverage–from 'enhanced
global warming' to the distribution of gadoid fishes, from invertebrate diversity
in tropical rain forests to individualist species responses–so that all
the key biogeographical and ecological questions of the day may be addressed.
Topics include 'what is naturalness?', debates on both philosophy and methods,
the implications of ecosystem fragmentation, the impact of human-induced changes,
as well as the ecological and economic significance of biodiversity. All systematic
groups are also embraced, from theory to practice, from plants to animals.
Journal of Biogeography is essential reading for all environmentalists,
biogeographers, ecologists, biologists, botanists and zoologists.
JSTOR provides a digital archive of the print version of Journal of
Biogeography. The electronic version of Journal of Biogeography

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.
