Faculty of 1000 Biology launch ecology faculty

18.03.2005


Faculty of 1000 Biology, a revolutionary literature awareness service for the life sciences, today announce the launch of a new faculty - ecology. The ecology faculty expands the coverage of Faculty of 1000 Biology, adding to the existing offering of 15 faculties covering subject areas from biochemistry to structural biology.



Harold Mooney, Professor of Environmental Biology at Stanford University is one of three Heads of Faculty for ecology. He warmly welcomes the expansion of the service to include ecological research:

“Faculty of 1000 Biology is a really wonderful tool to keep up with the major advances in one’s discipline, guided by experts in the field. This is the answer to keeping up with the escalating abundance of new scientific information and offers an extraordinary insight into those publications that have the potential to impact significantly the development of ecology.”


Ilkka Hanski and Jane Lubchenco join Professor Mooney as Heads of Faculty for ecology. Ilkka Hanski is Professor, Department of Ecology and Systematics at the University of Helsinki in Finland, while Jane Lubchenco is Valley Professor of Marine Biology and Distinguished Professor of Zoology at Oregon State University. These respected leaders in the field have helped recruit over 150 experts to act as Section Heads and Faculty Members for the ecology faculty. A full list of the researchers involved in the faculty is available on the Faculty of 1000 Biology website at http://www.facultyof1000.com/about/members/8032

The new faculty includes 11 sections: Behavioural ecology; Community ecology & biodiversity; Conservation & restoration ecology; Ecosystem ecology; Evolutionary ecology; Global change ecology; Marine & freshwater ecology; Physiological ecology; Population ecology; Spatial & landscape ecology; Theoretical ecology.

The Faculty of 1000 Biology ecology faculty not only evaluates articles in ecology journals, but also provides evaluations on relevant articles published in general science journals, and in journals aimed at other specialties. Ecologists and conservation biologists will be able to quickly and easily identify important articles of relevance to them in a range of journals, and read evaluations of the articles by experts in the field.

Faculty of 1000 Biology is a unique online service that systematically highlights the most interesting papers published in the biological sciences, based on the recommendations of over 1900 of the world’s leading scientists. The end-product is a rapid service, run by scientists, that provides a consensus view of important papers and trends across biology. Users can customize the service to their interests and opt for regular updates by email. Over 80% of the world’s top institutions already subscribe.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
