Biology and Environment is a broad spectrum journal publishing biological and environmental research on topics of Irish interest for an international readership. The journal should be essential reading for those researchers concerned with the disciplines on the island of Ireland.

Special issues of the journal have addressed the Water Framework Directive, European vegetation in the 21st century, the flora and fauna of Atlantic islands, threatened Irish freshwater fishes, the Burren, Biodiversity, Cyanobacterial symbiosis, and the ecology of old mine sites.

Biology and Environment has been listed in ISI, the Web of Science, which will ensure that it will remain a key Irish journal, publishing research of national and international importance.
