Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution is proud to announce the launch of its newest section – “Biogeography and Macroecology“, led by Specialty Chief Editor Peter Convey of the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), UK.

“Pressures faced by global diversity today are unprecedented, so it has never been more urgent that we develop our understanding at all scales of the distribution of biodiversity and controls of its changing patterns.” – Peter Convey, Chief Editor
