25th Anniversary Collection

As Co-editors in Chief of ECOSYSTEMS, we are delighted to celebrate the growth and success of this journal over the past 25 years. Ecosystem science remains a vibrant field within ecology, and ECOSYSTEMS is still the only journal exclusively devoted to this subdiscipline of ecology. The journal is now well-established as an outstanding international outlet for studies of the structure and function of terrestrial, aquatic and marine ecosystems across a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. Although nearly all ecological studies are conducted in an ecosystem, there is a fundamental difference between ecology in ecosystems versus the ecology of ecosystems (Fisher 1997). ECOSYSTEMS focuses on the latter, and here we briefly reflect on the past and look toward the future of the journal.
