Message from Debs – publishing of primer notes in Molecular Ecology Resources

NB: All PGR Note submissions received after December 31st 2008 will not be
printed in Molecular Ecology Resources as individual papers. Instead, each
issue will carry a 'microattribution' article announcing the primers developed
for each organism. This change will allow groups that develop primers to
receive recognition whilst simultaneously permitting Molecular Ecology
Resources to continue its development into a leading methods journal for
ecology and evolutionary biology. In these articles, the first author will be
listed as "Molecular Ecology Resources Consortium", and contributing authors
will be listed in alphabetical order thereafter. An example paper can be found . The text of the PGR Note itself will
be made available on the Molecular Ecology Resources Primer database at, where it will be directly linked to the
database entry for loci themselves.
