About this Research Topic

Abstract Submission Deadline 28 October 2022
Manuscript Submission Deadline 28 February 2023

We are delighted to present the inaugural Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution 'Women in Urban Ecology' article collection.

At present, less than 30% of researchers worldwide are women. Long-standing biases and gender stereotypes are discouraging girls and women away from science-related fields, and STEM research in particular. Science and gender equality are, however, essential to ensure sustainable development as highlighted by UNESCO. In order to change traditional mindsets, gender equality must be promoted, stereotypes defeated, and girls and women should be encouraged to pursue STEM careers.

Therefore, Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution is proud to offer this series as a platform to promote the work of women scientists, across all fields of ecology and evolution.

The work presented here highlights the diversity of research performed across the entire breadth of urban ecology research and presents advances in theory, experiment, and methodology with applications to compelling problems.

Please note: to be considered for this collection, the first or last author should be a researcher who identifies as a woman.

Keywords: women in science, urban ecology, #CollectionSeries


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
