Das Editorial aus dem letzten Heft:


The present issue of Senckenbergiana biologica, volume 88, no. 2, is its last; the journal will cease publication. Senckenberg has to reduce the number of its journals. Primarily this is done to revise the profile and scope of the scientific publication series of the house in its merger with the museum institutions in Dresden, Görlitz and Müncheberg on the 1st of January 2009, but it is also forced by budget limitations.

In 1954, Senckenbergiana biologica was founded as a split-off of the series Senckenbergiana, which was then divided into the biological journal Senckenbergiana biologica and the geological-palaeontological journal Senckenbergiana lethea, both continuing with vol. 35. In 1969 a third split-off series, Senckenbergiana maritima, was born (in vol. 50, but re-numbered to start with vol. 1). The journals S. lethea (under the new name Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments) and S. maritima (under the new name Marine Biodiversity), both now under the cover of Springer Publishers, will continue to be published.

For Senckenbergiana biologica, with its broad focus on botany and zoology, the prospect for sufficient sales from subscriptions is too small to maintain its viability in the present time of electronic publishing and openly accessible science. Senckenberg will accumulate new, more specialised biological journals under its name in the amalgamation with the other institutions to largely fill the gap.

The lists of contents by volumes and issues, all articles sorted by authors, and the list of new taxa described in Senckenbergiana biologica (comprising vols. 73–88, 1994–2008) will remain available on the Web for many years under the URL
