Pacific Conservation Biology is the official journal of the Society for Conservation Biology Oceania Section. SCBO members benefit from a 40% discount on a personal online subscription to PCB*.

Pacific Conservation Biology provides a forum for discussion about regional conservation problems; debate about priorities and mechanisms for conservation oriented biological research; and dissemination of the results of relevant research. Papers published in PCB are read by conservation scientists, practitioners and students from across our region.

We encourage SCBO members to publish their research in PCB. We also aim to collate special issues for the journal biennially, in conjunction with our conferences.

Conservation/Restoration in Peopled Landscapes – Coming soon!

Oceania’s ecosystems are among the most degraded worldwide and much of its native biodiversity is now threatened with extinction. Threats are numerous but most often due to direct and indirect interactions of native species with non-native/invasive species. There is, however, current widespread political and societal support for methods aimed at mitigating the effect of invasive species to restore ecosystems that can support viable populations of native species. Many pest eradication projects also no longer focus on natural landscapes but occur in landscapes heavily used by humans such as urban areas.
