Acta Amazonica is a multidisciplinary scientific free-access journal founded in 1971, by the Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas da Amazônia (National Institute for Research in the Amazon) – INPA. The Journal publishes articles in English across a broad range of disciplines, including botany, agronomy, forest science, zoology, ecology, climatology, health and the social sciences. Acta Amazonica specifically focuses on publishing scientific contributions which are directly related to Amazonia and Amazonian themes, therefore topics beyond this scope are generally not considered for review. The Editorial Board is comprised of an Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editors, all of whom are highly qualified scientists from different institutions across Brazil and overseas.
