The board of the Journal of Pollination Ecology and me are extremely proud and honoured to announce JPE’s new Editor-in-Chief: Prof James Thomson from the University of Toronto, Canada.
The seed to develop this journal was planted in 2005 on a tiny island in Sweden, Tjärnö, at the SCAPE meeting – during “discussions over breakfast/dinner, overlooking the sea…“. Four years later, the first article was published. But I still was not quite sure that this journal could really work and continue to produce publications. You all, editors, authors, reviewers and readers proofed that it could! I would like to thank everybody for your confidence, support, encouragement and personal investment to make this adventure a success!
Now that the journal has grown up, I am deeply grateful I can hand its leadership over to such a renowned pollination scientist as James Thomson. Definitely, under his guidance, the journal will continue to flourish and grow. Please read his editorial note to learn about his vision for JPE!
Carolin Mayer, from now on your Managing Editor of JPE
The Journal of Pollination Ecology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that aims to promote the exchange of original knowledge and research in any area of pollination issues.
