After two years of publishing Ecological Economics Reviews as a special issue of the ‘Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences’, the USSEE is pleased to announce a move to Springer and a slightly different name: Reviews in Ecological Economics . Written by leading scientists and with a prominent transdisciplinary editorial board, this thoughtful and up-to-date synthesis of the primary research has become a new benchmark in the field. Review articles provide reviews of key issues and subjects in a comprehensive, relevant, and timely fashion, creating a critical point of access to the field of ecological economics, and an opportunity to reflect on past progress and chart the direction forward.

Specific research areas covered include: valuation of natural resources, sustainable agriculture and development, ecologically integrated technology, integrated ecologic-economic modelling at scales from local to regional to global, implications of thermodynamics for economics and ecology, renewable resource management and conservation, critical assessments of the basic assumptions underlying current economic and ecological paradigms and the implications of alternative assumptions, economic and ecological consequences of genetically engineered organisms, and gene pool inventory and management, alternative principles for valuing natural wealth, integrating natural resources and environmental services into national income and wealth accounts, methods of implementing efficient environmental policies, case studies of economic-ecologic conflict or harmony, etc. New issues in this area are rapidly emerging and will find a ready forum in Ecological Economics .
