Aims & Scope


An International Journal for Scientific Research on the Interaction Between Agroecosystems and the Environment

Agriculture, Ecosystems and Environment publishes scientific articles dealing with the interface between agroecosystems and the natural environment, specifically how agriculture influences the environment and how changes in that environment impact agroecosystems. Preference is given to papers from experimental and observational research at the field, system or landscape level, from studies that enhance our understanding of processes using data-based biophysical modelling, and papers that bridge scientific disciplines and integrate knowledge. All papers should be placed in an international or wide comparative context.

The focus is on the following areas:
• Biological and physical characteristics and dynamics of agroecosystems.
• Ecology, diversity and sustainability of agricultural systems.
• Relationships between agroecosystems and the natural environment, including land, air, and water.
• Agroecosystem and global environmental changes including climate change, greenhouse gases and air pollution.
• Ecological consequences of intensification, soil degradation, waste application, irrigation, and mitigation options.
• Environmental implications of agricultural land use and land use change.

All manuscripts are initially screened on their topic suitability and linguistic quality. The following topics are discouraged unless they provide new information regarding processes operating at the agroecosystem-environment interface: inventory and survey analysis and impact assessment, including life cycle and emergy analysis; greenhouse or laboratory-based studies; development of models or methodologies and pure model application; studies that are purely agronomic, socio-economic, or political.
