Alpine Botany

ISSN: 1664-2201 (Print) 1664-221X (Online)


Alpine Botany is an international journal providing a forum for botanical studies with a particular interest in plant ecology, vegetation and flora of mountain regions.

Alpine Botany publishes original contributions and reviews on biogeography, biosystematics, evolutionary biology, population biology, ecophysiology and functional ecology of plants and vegetation, and on interactions of plants with plants, animals or microorganisms.

We aim at contributions that explore plant biological phenomena in order to understand functionally ongoing ecological, evolutionary or physiological processes.

Descriptive or applied studies are acceptable, provided that clear research questions are addressed and that findings are presented in a context fitting the scope of the journal. Articles must be relevant for an international readership.

Alpine Botany is the official publication of the Swiss Botanical Society and is published by Springer Basel AG, Switzerland. The first issue was published in 1891.
