Book Reviewers! Calling all critics!

Wiley Publishing offers the opportunity for Society members to review recent publications for the benefit of readers of our journals Austral Ecology and EMR. All book reviewers will not only keep the book sent to them for comment but also receive a discount voucher from Wiley Publishing after submission of their 800 word review. The book list below is open for 2 weeks from when it is first advertised to enable all members an opportunity to offer for a book. After these two weeks you will be contacted with the result of your offer.

* denotes a book that will be returned to the publisher if no reviewer is found in this round

Please contact the Book Review Editor, Maggie Watson books@ecolsoc.org.au with any enquiries.

Note from the Editor:
Could potential reviewers please realistically consider whether they have the time to read an entire book and write an 800 word review within approximately 8 weeks. If this isn't possible, could you please wait until another time, as there undoubtedly will be plenty more opportunities.
