The peer-reviewed ecological journal Oikos has nothing to do with the popular brand of Greek yogurt that shares its name. It is published by Wiley on behalf of the Nordic Society Oikos and was first issued in 1949. Since then, it has been at the forefront of ecological research by providing a platform for the publication of original and innovative theories.
Papers that summarize, investigate, or develop previously established ecological theories are thus given less priority for publication. Above all, Oikos seeks to encourage new developments in ecological study.
Here are some of my favorites from Oikos:
Does Immigration “Rescue” Populations from Extinction? Implications regarding Movement Corridors and the Conservation of Mammals
In other words: can mammals save each other from extinction?
A Case of Microcystis Water Colouring in Winter
Are changes in lake water color during the winter just a sign of pollution or evidence of a whole new phenomenon?
