Posted in Research by fedwards on April 27th, 2007

The Ecologist, hardcopy or on-line, is an excellent environmental journal based in the UK that reports current news, has discussions on blogs, provides podcasts and archives – great for environmental researchers! – on international environmental issues. It targets a radical audience "providing a forum for social and environmental activists who seek to change current developmental policies in both the developing and the developed world".
