AUSTRALASIAN JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT: Call for papers special issue 'Biological Diversity'

The Editors of the Australasian Journal of Environmental Management invite offers of papers on 'Biological Diversity' for a special issue of the Journal in December 2010.

This year, 2010, is the United Nations designated International Year for Biological Diversity. In one statement, the United Nations Environment Programme said that ‘the importance of biological diversity to human society is hard to overstate. An estimated 40 percent of the global economy is based on biological products and processes. The effective use of biological diversity at all levels - (including) genes, species and ecosystems - is therefore a precondition for sustainable development’.

Papers submitted for possible publication in this special issue must follow the 'guidelines for contributors' including length limit of 6000 words (guidelines can be found on our website at www.eianz.org/publications/australasian-journal-of-environmental-management).

Papers to be presented at the Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand annual conference are welcome, subject to the timelines:

Abstracts or expressions of interest: please submit abstracts or expressions of interest to the Editors at ajem@uq.edu.au as soon as possible. Full manuscripts: 18 June. (This is to allow sufficient time for reviewing, revisions and production). Earlier submissions are welcome.

Enquiries: ajem@uq.edu.au or Prof. Helen Ross on 0408 195 324 (please allow time to respond as the email account is staffed part-time).
