Although still young, the Journal of Pollination Ecology has established itself as a successful and vital conduit for research results, methodological advances, and—to some extent—opinion pierces concerning the diverse field of pollination biology.  In a sense, it has been too successful, because the founding Editor-in-Chief, Carolin Mayer, has decided that she needs assistance in handling the increased volume of submissions and associated tasks.  After deliberating, the board members of JPE have opted to try a new arrangement.  I have accepted their invitation to join the effort as Editor-in-Chief, while Carolin’s title will switch to Managing Editor.   She will retain responsibility for the essential operation and production of the journal, while I will take on ultimate responsibility for evaluating submissions, finding reviewers, and establishing the content of the journal.  Of course, I will depend heavily on the Associate Editors in this effort.
