Effective January 1, 2013, Micronesica will be published continuously, online only, with open access. See Editorial
During nearly 50 years of publishing, Micronesica has established a reputation as a vital venue and repository for information on the natural sciences in Micronesia. The peer-reviewed articles are of lasting value, documenting flora, fauna, and the natural history of the human populations on islands undergoing rapid changes. There are many "classic" papers, referred to long after publication. Many new species have been described in our pages; new biological records and checklists of species are also regular features. Reports range in approach from wildlife records, to local names of species, experimental studies, and taxonomic monographs. We have published conferences on Micronesian archaeology, pest species in the Pacific Islands, and other topics, and we are now the vehicle for the long-established series Insects of Micronesia, in collaboration with the Bishop Museum, Hawai'i. Micronesica provides a vehicle for authors from outside the region to bring their results back to the region while having them available worldwide.
