The fossil record contains unique long-term insights into how ecosystems form and function which cannot be determined simply by examining modern systems. It also provides a record of endangered species through time, which allow us to make conservation decisions based on thousands to millions of years of information.The aim of Paleontology in Ecology and Conservation is to demonstrate how palaeontological data has been or could be incorporated into ecological or conservation scientific studies.
Paleontology in Ecology and Conservation is written by palaeontologists for modern ecologists and conservation scientists. Manuscripts fall into one (or a combination) of four broad categories: case studies, review articles, practical considerations and future directions. Paleontology in Ecology and Conservation serves as both a 'how to guide' and provides the current state of knowledge for this type of research. It highlights the unique and critical insights that can be gained by the inclusion of palaeontological data into modern ecological or conservation studies.
