The trend for ladybirds (Coccinellidae) over the last 3 decades has been rapid decline of formerly common, economically important native species in North America, Europe and other regions. Answering key questions would facilitate development of effective conservation programs. This symposium will provide an overview of resources (citizen science databases, body of literature due to interest in biocontrol) and challenges (lack of data, infrastructure in Africa & South America), in addition to examining global patterns and presenting results of citizen science programs and surveys.
Journals participating in Peerage of Science
Available before, during and after the peer review process. All Select destinations have concurrent access to all ongoing peer review processes, and the right to make direct publishing offers to you. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
Available only after the peer review process is complete. Submission to a Connect destination exports the process exclusively and cancels any existing offers from The Select destinations (the traditional "no simultaneous consideration" policy). However, you can cancel export later by exporting to another Connect destination, or by returning the process to full availability. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
You can create a link to the peer review process and give it to editors of any journal of your choice in a traditional submission. Using the link is a free service for both you and the receiving journal.
