  • We invite researchers to make use of our community site to disseminate their research and foster discussion.

    Editorial
  • The delay in final negotiations on the global post-2020 biodiversity framework is providing time for additional scientific evidence, and for strengthening ideas around natural capital.

    Editorial
  • The rise of SARS-CoV-2 variants with altered virus biology is bringing viral evolution into the public spotlight.

    Editorial
  • A potential breakthrough in our ability to predict protein structure from sequence could have a major impact on evolutionary biology.

    Editorial
  • A wealth of potential exists for citizen science to contribute to major ecological and societal challenges. We can all play a part by contributing to these projects, and encouraging our networks to do so too.

    Editorial
  • In this issue, we focus on justice, equity, diversity and inclusion in science.

    Editorial
  • The importance of biodiversity protection for disease prevention is now obvious from evolutionary, ecological and economic angles.

    Editorial
  • We are now publishing details of the review process for published manuscripts.

    Editorial
  • Prompted by the Black Lives Matter and Shutdown STEM movements, Nature Ecology & Evolution acknowledges the systemic racism in scientific research, and the part we play in this. Here we outline our commitment to fight this racism.

    Editorial
  • A celebration of experimental evolution studies published in this journal.

    Editorial
  • The COVID-19 crisis could change the way we conduct our scientific lives, for better and for worse.

    Editorial
  • Evidence synthesis facilitates a more robust understanding of generalities in ecology and evolution, as well as the effectiveness of conservation interventions. However, as synthesis methods become embedded in research workflows, it is imperative that the next generation of researchers receives sufficient training.

    Editorial
  • As the COVID-19 outbreak continues, the next pandemic could be prevented by ending the wildlife trade and reinvesting in the monitoring of potential zoonoses.

    Editorial
  • Fires in Australia show the devastating interaction between climate and biodiversity emergencies, and make clear that action is needed at all levels.

    Editorial
  • This year will see the finalization of a global framework for biodiversity for the next decade and beyond. We look at the reasons to be optimistic and call for increased engagement in the process.

    Editorial
  • A new study strengthens the evidence base for declining trends in insect abundance, but also adds some much-needed nuance to the apocalyptic narrative.

    Editorial
  • To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Nature, we survey some highlights from the journal’s ecology and evolution archives.

    Editorial
  • A full picture of biodiversity across space and time requires macro- and microevolutionary approaches.

    Editorial
  • Explorer-naturalist Alexander von Humboldt’s contributions to the fields of ecology, global change and geoscience fundamentally altered the way we view the natural world and our place in it. On the 250th anniversary of his birth, we look back over his life and compile a collection of articles inspired by his legacy.
