The Linnean Society of London
Biological Journal of the Linnean Society   The Biological Journal of the Linnean Society is a direct descendant of the oldest biological journal in the world, which published the epoch-making papers on evolution by Darwin and Wallace. The Journal specializes in evolution in the broadest sense and covers all taxonomic groups in all five kingdoms. It covers the whole range of techniques used to study evolution, including whole-organism, molecular, theoretical and practical.
