Folia Zoologica

Folia Zoologica

Internaional Journal of Vertebrate Zoology

Publishing Organization:



An international journal for all fields of vertebrate zoology.

Folia Zoologica publishes articles containing original insight into various aspects of vertebrate zoology that are not published and not under consideration for publication elsewhere. The journal welcomes significant papers presenting new and original data of more than regional significance. Studies testing explicitly formulated hypotheses are preferred to those presenting primarily descriptive results. Review papers are particularly welcomed and should deal with topics of general interest or of current importance, being synthetic rather than comprehensive in emphasis.

The journal is published quarterly and one volume usually consists of four issues. However, additional issues can be published occasionally.

Folia Zoologica is a continuation of the periodical Entomologické Listy (Folia Entomologica, 1938-1951, volumes 1‑14), Zoologické a Entomologické Listy (Folia Zoologica and Entomologica, 1952-1955, volumes 1-4, n.s.) and Zoologické Listy (Folia Zoologica, 1956-1976, volumes 5-25).

The first volume under is name is volume 26.

Full papers published in Folia Zoologica are available on http://www.ivb.cz/pubser_en.htm one year after publishing articles. Folia Zoologica is indexed by CAB Abstracts, Elsevier Bibliographic Databases incl. Scopus, Web of Knowledge by Thomson Reuters and NISC Bibliographic databases. Contents are distributed by EBSCO Publishing.
