The series Invertebrate Ecology and Conservation Monographs is launched by Pensoft Publishers on behalf of a wide team of specialists from all around the world. It is published in 4 issues per year. The first two volumes appeared in January 2007. The main aim of the series is to attract the attention of both academics and society to model studies in invertebrate ecology and conservation. It is also intended to include in-depth studies supported by detailed data, which nowadays are rarely published as complete works because of their volume, but which are often much more sustainable than many high impact journal papers.
