Ecology is the study of how living things interact with the physical environment. The Ecology Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers and early-stage research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps Ecology scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
Ecology uses a wide range of approaches to study past, current, and future ecosystems. Staying abreast of the latest technological advancements and improvements in methodology are crucial for improving the accuracy of ecological data collection and analysis. This, in turn, helps with determining and evaluating policy and management strategies. SSRN helps ecologists discover cutting edge research in their own and other related fields such as Biology, Environmental Science and Earth Science.
