Aims & Scope

Aims and Scope for Nordic Journal of Botany

In a Linnean tradition, Nordic Journal of Botany publishes original contributions of relevance to the botanical biodiversity on earth. All aspects of the taxonomy, evolution, conservation and biogeography of plants (including algae and bryophytes) and fungi may be treated.

Contributions devoted to systematics (including phylogenetics, genetic variation within and among taxa, nomenclature and descriptions and revisions of taxa), biogeography, conservation biology and recent changes and threats to botanical diversity are welcomed.

In addition, manuscripts on macro- and micro-morphology, cytology, reproductive biology and ecophysiology are welcomed provided that the findings are presented in a taxonomic, evolutionary or biogeographical context. Authors are invited to submit manuscripts on original research within these fields as well as essays on recent developments in botany.
