For example, Burmese pythons ( shown here) continue to be sold to consumers and may eventually establish wild populations that threaten local species.
READ MORE Frontiers is publishing a series of articles about non-academic careers, aimed at those looking for a non-traditional career in ecology. See the list below for what’s been published so far: Exploring Ecological Careers – a new Frontiers series Ecological careers in nature-based non-governmental organizations Museum careers – so much more than curating collections!
It drove home to me just how disconnected my own work is from much of the mainstream of ecology, in terms of both topics and approaches.

Ecology’s most-cited papers are a window into where the field is at and where it’s going.
An imperfect and distorted window, of course–only a few types of ecology papers, on a few topics and published by a few journals, have any chance of becoming really highly cited. After all, the papers that become very highly cited are no accident.
International Journal of Ecology is archived in Portico, which provides permanent archiving for electronic scholarly journals, as well as via the LOCKSS initiative.
It operates a fully open access publishing model which allows open global access to its published content.
