Acta Universitatis Lodziensis. Folia Biologica et Oecologica
"Folia Biologica et Oecologica" is a journal issued by the Faculty of Biology and Environmental Protection of the University of Lodz. Since 2012 "Folia Biologica et Oecologica" has been published by an international editorial office exclusively online in an open access scientific content formula, Sciendo, that guarantees wider distribution as well as easy access to its articles.
"Folia Biologica et Oecologica" publishes original and innovative research papers on all aspects of biology and ecology especially in the field of zoology, hydrobiology, botany, microbiology, biochemistry, biophysics, physiology, behaviour, and evolutionary biology. Folia Biologica et Oecologica publishes standard papers but also longer papers such as review articles that sum up the current state of the research on a particular and important topic. Manuscripts should be written in English and conform to the guidelines below. Authors whose first language is not English may count on our assistance in getting their papers ready for publication; however, meticulous proofreading and editing is expected before the submission of manuscripts. After the manuscript has been preliminarily accepted by the editorial committee, it will be forwarded to referees for peer review. Manuscripts will be published six months from the time of preliminary acceptance.
