Aims and scope

Annales de Limnologie - International Journal of Limnology publishes papers on the ecology of freshwater systems, ranging from studies of aquatic organisms, physical and chemical works which relate to the biological environment, to ecological applications and frameworks for water management directives. The aim of the journal is to promote rapid publication of original researches which lead to conceptual generalisations in the field of Limnology. Purely descriptive studies will be considered only if dealing with a seldom explored field of investigation. Submitted manuscripts are peer-reviewed within 6-8 weeks. Accepted papers are published within 3 months after acceptance by the Editor-in-Chief. The official language of the journal is English.

Main topics: Ecology of freshwater systems ; biodiversity, taxonomy, distribution patterns in space and time, biology of animals and plants ; experimental and conceptual studies which integrate laboratory and/or field work on physiology, population dynamics, biogeochemistry and nutrient dynamics, management, mathematical modelling ; techniques for sampling and chemical analyses, ecological applications, procedures which provide frameworks for environmental legislation.
