Bridging the gap between researchers, practitioners and policymakers

Welcome to the home of applied ecology from the British Ecological Society publications.

Here you can find summaries of research published in Journal of Applied Ecology, Ecological Solutions and Evidence and information from Applied Ecology Resources, as well as topical contributions from the ecological researchers, practitioners and policymakers that make up our global community.

If you have an idea for a post, please get in touch. As well as written contributions, we’re keen to receive visual and multimedia posts. Alongside posts in English, we’re also happy to share translations in languages relevant to the audience of the research.
