Book Reviews

In 2010 Biotropica introduced a Book Reviews section in which recently published books (typically within the last year) on tropical ecology and conservation are evaluated, described and reviewed. Each year Biotropica will publish up to four such reviews in its November issue.

Normally, book reviews are by invitation only, although authors, editors and publishers are welcome to suggest books for review. Requests including the title, authors/editors, and a short abstract of the book, should be sent to the Biotropica editorial office via the contact form below. If judged potentially suitable then a copy of the book will be requested and should be sent to the following address:

Emilio Bruna
Biotropica Editorial Office
Wildlife Ecology & Conservation
University of Florida
110 Newins-Ziegler Hall
Gainesville, FL 32611-0430

Books sent to Biotropica are non-returnable A decision regarding whether a book will be reviewed will only be made after one of the Editors has examined the book. Thereafter an invitation to submit a book review will be issued to an independent reviewer.

Below are examples of prior reviews:
