Conservation ecology is the branch of ecology along with evolutionary biology that deals with the preservation and management of biodiversity. Its goal is to find ways to conserve species, habitats, landscapes and ecosystems as quickly, as efficiently, and as economically as possible. The theoretical base of conservation ecology is synthetic, based not only on principles of ecology but on those of genetics, systematics, population biology, and other disciplines.
Ecological conservation can be brought about by Developing best management practices for sustainable resource development and land use, Monitoring and restoration techniques for wildlife, developing techniques to monitor and manage invasive species
High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
