Symposium: Is urban conservation a panacea for insect biodiversity losses?
Urbanization is a leading contributor to biodiversity decline. Yet urban greenspaces have been found to support a high richness and abundance of arthropods, including rare and threatened species. This has led researchers to question if these patches can be designed to promote biodiversity and arthropod-derived ecosystem services in cities. Drivers such as habitat fragmentation, contamination, and competition with exotic species threaten the quality of designed urban greenspaces as conservation sites. Therefore, current research aims to quantify the success of conservation efforts.
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.
