Climate change & Biodiversity

are highlighted

While the majority of journals listed on this page address climate change and/or biodiversity in some way, those with a core focus on one or the other are highlighted.

Please note that this is a work-in-progress: many journals are yet to be classified, and there are no straightforward criteria for determining whether a journal is “climate-focused” or “biodiversity-focused.”
