Since 1946 the journal serves to publish the newest results from research in life sciences. It provides to the authors a credible and efficient peer-review and is in a front to theirs expectations of high scientific standards. From over twenty years Biologia is indexed by Abstracting and Indexing Services and evaluated by receiving a first IF in 1994.

Accordingly to the three subjects sections (botany, zoology and cellular and molecular biology) the papers are publish bimonthly. Each section has its own Editorial Board and Editorial Office.

The papers on plant sciences cover fundamental research in taxonomy, geobotany, genetics and all fields of experimental botany including cellular, whole-plant and community physiology. The papers on zoology cover mostly animal systematics and taxonomy, morphology, ecology and physiology from cellular to molecular level.

Every Issue of Biologia will contain the papers from all the above-mentioned fields of biology. Full-paper contributions should present original experimental, methodological or theoretical research.
