Basic information

Zoologia (Curitiba) is an international journal on zoological research that is published by the Sociedade Brasileira de Zoologia. Original publications by scientists and researchers from Brazil and abroad on the various areas of zoological sciences are accepted, such as: systematics, evolution, taxonomy, nomenclature, biogeography, morphology, physiology, biology, ecology, symbiosis, conservation, behavior, genetics, and allied areas. Extensive reviews or articles on current topics in zoology will be published by invitation in the Invited Review section.

Since its foundation in 1982, a total of 25 volumes were published under the name Revista Brasileira de Zoologia (ISSN 0101-8175 and 1806-969X). With the goal of broadening its international visibility, starting in 2009, it began to be called ZOOLOGIA – An International Journal for Zoology while keeping the original volume and issue numbering.

Its abbreviated title is Zoologia (Curitiba), which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references and strips.
