Preface to the first issue of Ecocycles
On behalf of the Committee of the European Ecocycles Society (ECyS) we are pleased to announce the publication of the inaugural issue of Ecocycles, our Society’s scientific journal. Ecocycles has been many months in the making: the Committee of ECyS became aware of the wide interest in the subject during the foundation of the Society and felt that a committed journal would be able to bring together the ideas of a broad academic community.
