About the Journal

Annali di Botanica dates back to 1884 when Pietro Romualdo Pirotta, Professor in Botany at the University of Rome, founded the Journal under the name "Annuario del Regio Istituto Botanico di Roma" (1885-1901), which was later changed in 1902 to its present name.

The Journal publishes original peer-reviewed papers and reviews on all aspects of plant ecology including coenology, ecophysiology, plant biodiversity, landscape ecology, population ecology, historical biogeography, palaeoecology, phylogeography. Annali di Botanica satisfies the need for a multidisciplinary approach in the study of the Global Change effects on plant biodiversity, thus stimulating novel contributions in the field of land use change and ecosystem services researches.

In addition to original Research Articles, “Notes” are also encouraged. There are no page charges.

The Journal publishes also peer-reviewed papers as proceedings of workshops and conferences. Special issues or issues dedicated to specific topics are also guest-edited.  Please contact the Editors if you are interested in developing a special issue.

Open Journal System (OJS) testing


Dear Member of the Annali di Botanica Editorial Board,

In the last few days, we have been testing the new Open Journal System (OJS) platform, which is currently being implemented for our journal. During the test phase, we noticed that some notifications have been mistakenly delivered to several members of the editorial board.  We kindly ask you to ignore such notifications and apologize for the inconvenience that occurred.

Best regards,

Fausto Manes, Editor in chief
