The journal Naturae is a French scientific and technical peer-reviewed journal. It aims to encourage the sharing of knowledge about land and sea biodiversity and geologic heritage as well as management issues. It publishes articles continuously.

It stems from the analysis that, in France, it is vital to allow access to naturalistic knowledge and highlight experiences in management/ecological restoration (ecological engineering, tests for different types of management for an environment or species in a natural area, etc.), which are poorly documented.

By publishing case studies necessary for creating systematic review, Naturae promotes knowledge enhancement in order to strengthen conservation. With summaries in English, the articles from the journal promote the visibility of French experiences in management/ecological restoration abroad and their integration in synthesis.

The articles published in Naturae comply with the various nomenclature codes. A copyright assignment will be signed by the authors before publication.
