Reproduction and Fertility banner promoting the Wildlife special collection of articles


Reproduction and Fertility publishes research and reviews on basic, translational and clinical reproduction and fertility across all animal species, including humans.

The journal recognises the importance of studies in wildlife reproductive health for conservation purposes, reflecting the remit of the owning society, the Society for Reproduction and Fertility (SRF).

Comments from the Co-Editors-in-Chief Professor Norah Spears and Professor Andrew Horne – University of Edinburgh

“As the journal emerges as a home for wildlife-focused research, we are delighted to bring you this growing collection of the research in this area published so far. These authors have taken advantage of the fact that there are currently no article publication charges* to publish open access in Reproduction and Fertility, allowing their work to reach a much wider readership.”

In recognition of the growing importance of this area for Reproduction and Fertility, we have an incoming Associate Editor in that field, Dr Pierre Comizzoli, from the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute.
