CALL FOR ARTICLES: special edition of APC on value of plant conservation to animals

ANPC is seeking articles for the Sept – Nov 2013 issue of our quarterly bulletin Australasian Plant Conservation (APC)

The issue will be on the theme of "The value of plant conservation to animals”.

The ecology and survival of plants and animals is interdependent. From pollination, to grazing, to provision of habitat resources, interactions between plants and animals underpin ecosystem functions. In this issue we are examining key interactions of plants and animals and the value of plant conservation to animals. Articles can range from overviews of some/all of the interactions to case studies illustrating particular examples.

General articles not on the theme are also welcome.

We also welcome: book reviews; interesting recent publications or resources; conference, workshop, course and fieldwork announcements; and details of relevant publications, information resources and websites.

Deadline for submissions is Friday 12 August 2013.

Guidelines for authors about the APC style and scope can be found here.

Articles generally should not exceed 1200 words and authors are encouraged to submit two or three high resolution images to illustrate their article.

If you are intending to submit an article or wish to discuss possibilities, please contact the Editor, Selga Harrington, by 30 July. Your final article must be submitted to Selga by email at selga.harrington (at) gmail (dot) com.
