A BIODIVERSiTY CONSERVANCY PUBLICATION

Biodiversity: Journal of life on Earth

Since the year 2000, Biodiversity Conservancy has published an international quarterly journal: Biodiversity, Journal of Lfe on Earth

The aim of Biodiversity is to raise an appreciation and deeper understanding of species, ecosystems and the interconnectedness of the living world and thereby avoid the mismanagement, misuse and destruction of biodiversity. Articles are written for a broad readership including scientists, educators, policy makers, conservationists, science writers, naturalists and students. Biodiversity aims to provide an international forum on all matters concerning the integrity and wellness of ecosystems and the diversity of species.

Biodiversity is looking for a Book Review Editor!

We are looking for a skilled writer who is active in biodiversity research and/or has an interest in the field with high levels of English competency and a flair for language. The reviewer will be required to read two books and/or publications every three months on a biodiversity-related topic and write a 300-350 word review encompassing it. Reviews can be written by other reviewers, those with perhaps more expertise in the subject matter of specific books, as long as the reviews are not copyrighted elsewhere. The Book Review Editor will be responsible for coordinating those reviews. We invite applicants to provide us with a short bio, areas of interest and professional background to Biodiversity’s Managing Editor Vanessa Reid at: reidva@biodiversityconservancy.org. Please send us some sample reviews of previous book, publication and/or literature reviews.

This is currently a voluntary position and is an opportunity for the successful applicant to stay abreast of current publications in the field of biodiversity as well as receiving printed or electronic book samples offered for review by publishers. It is also a great opportunity to connect with other specialists working in the field of biodiversity thanks to BCI’s extensive network of scientists, academics, field practitioners, activists and many more.
