Pacific Conservation Biology

Pacific Conservation Biology is the official journal of the Society for Conservation Biology Oceania.

The Pacific region has profound problems in conservation and land management that require urgent attention. The region also has people with world-class skills and training in conservation oriented biological research.

Pacific Conservation Biology provides an important discussion forum for regional conservation issues, debate about management priorities, and dissemination of research results. The journal publishes original research, reviews, perspectives and book reviews.

About the Society for Conservation Biology – Oceania

We are an active group of conservation scientists and practitioners that form the Oceania section of the Society for Conservation Biology.

The Society for Conservation Biology (SCB) is an international professional organisation dedicated to promoting the scientific study of the phenomena that affect the maintenance, loss, and restoration of biological diversity. The Society’s membership comprises a wide range of people interested in the conservation and study of biological diversity: resource managers, educators, government and private conservation workers, and students make up the more than 5,000 members world-wide.

The SCB Oceania (SCBO) section represents Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands, and has been functioning with an elected independent board since 2005. Amongst other activities, SCBO holds tremendously successful regional conservation conferences, recently in Darwin, Australia (2012), Suva, Fiji (2014) and Brisbane, Australia (2016). Our next conference will be in Wellington (New Zealand) in 2018. In addition, we continue to support and grow our regional journal Pacific Conservation Biology. SCBO now has six local Chapters in Brisbane, Sydney, Wellington, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Hawaii.
