New Journal: Case Studies in the Environment

Blog by ATBC member Tuyeni H Mwampamba

I’m excited to announce an innovative new resource that I am involved in for students, faculty, educators, professionals, and policymakers for deep exploration of environmental issues for theory, teaching and practice: Case Studies in the Environment (
Published by University of California Press, Case Studies in the Environment is a journal of peer-reviewed case study articles with slides and teaching notes, articles on case study pedagogy, and a preprint server for editor-reviewed case study slides. Case Studies in the Environment is organized around a comprehensive collection of cases within six domains, with the first three domains—Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation, Ecology and Biodiversity Conservation, and Environmental Law, Policy and Management—coming in mid-2017. The remaining three domains—Sustainability, Energy and the Environment, and Water Science and Technology—will launch in 2018-20.

I think many of you would find this resource valuable for your courses, but I also believe that with your experience and approaches to tropical ecology and conservation, you would be great contributors of case studies that we could all use in our classes. I hope you will consider submitting your case study.

Do have a look at the journal website for more information— note that there are several categories in addition to the article option, such as the ‘slides deck’. For more information on submitting a case, please see; Also, sign up for periodic email alerts about Case Studies in the Environment at

Do not hesitate to contact me directly if you have any questions.
