Special Issue in Wildlife Biology

In collaboration with Skandulv, Wildlife Biology is inviting researchers to submit manuscripts for their Special Issue "Wolves Across Borders"

Wolves Across Borders - Special Issue in Wildlife Biology

Wolves have always been at the center of human-wildlife conflict, and their management is politically polarized and contentious. Furthermore, the world’s wolf population ranges across an incredibly diverse collection of countries which represent a broad spectrum of cultures, environments, economies, and government structures. This is especially true in Eurasia, where wolves cross between the borders of over 50 different nations. Variation in cultural values, political objectives, monitoring strategies, and knowledge base about local wolf populations makes cross-border management complex.

For the special issue “Wolves Across Borders”, Wildlife Biology (a full Gold Open Access journal) welcomes theoretical, empirical, and practical manuscripts of high standard from all areas of wolf science, ranging from the ecology and behavior of wolves to the human dimensions of wolf management and governance.

Please state in your cover letter that this is a "Wolves Across Borders" Special Issue submission

Note - you do not need to attend WAB for your manuscript to be considered for the Special Issue!

Submission Deadline:   September 30, 2023

For questions about submissions, please email :
