Natureza & Conservação (Brazilian Journal for Nature Conservation) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal devoted to improving theoretical, methodological and practical aspects of conservation science. Until 2009, the journal was edited by the Fundação “O Boticário de Proteção à Natureza”. From 2010 on, it became an official scientific journal of the new Brazilian Association for Ecological Science and Conservation (Associação Brasileira de Ciência Ecológica e Conservação - ABECO), with financial support from the Boticário Group Foundation for Nature Protection.

The main goal of Natureza & Conservação is to communicate new research and conceptual advances in conservation science to different actors of society, including researchers, conservationists, technical officers and decision makers. Scientific papers should focus on new conceptual or methodological developments with practical implications, and case studies will be considered only if referred to more general contexts.
