Call for Abstracts: Winter Ecology in Northeastern Naturalist

NNBy Thomas Wickman, Trinity College

I am pleased to announce an opportunity for environmental historians, historians of science, or historical climatologists to contribute research articles to a special issue of Northeastern Naturalist dedicated to the topic of winter ecology. The mission of the special issue is three-fold: to highlight the region’s winter ecology in general, to provide a venue for studies stemming from the historically severe winter of 2014-15, and to understand winter ecology through the lens of history. Historical articles may include, but are not limited to, case studies of severe winters, analyses of changing winter landscapes and waterways over longer periods of time, and critical interpretations of the evolution of the field of winter ecology in the American Northeast.

The call for abstracts, description of the special issue, and online submission form can be found here:
  • Abstract deadline: 1 October 2015 (invitations to submit manuscript made by 15 October 2015)
  • Manuscript deadline: 15 February 2016
  • Targeted publication date: January 2017
Please contact with questions.
