Virtual Issue: In Honour of Michael Hutchings

AUGUST 2013
Professor Michael (Mike) John Hutchings retired as Editor-In-Chief of Journal of Ecology at the end of 2012. Under his supervision, the Journal’s stature not only kept up with the changing landscape of scientific publishing, but grew, even eclipsing competing journals sometimes seen as more general in scope. Mike’s contributions to the Journal of Ecology have been immense over the years. Prior to serving as the Editor-In-Chief of the Journal from 2004 to 2012, he served as Associate Editor from 1985 to 1999 and as Editor from 1999-2004. His contributions to the Journal include not only nearly 30 years of editorial service, but also the publication of many of his most significant findings. Indeed, the Journal of Ecology has been Mike’s first choice for his own first-authored work. It is hard to imagine the Journal without him. We hope that readers will enjoy this Virtual Issue, which highlights the breadth of his scientific contributions to the Journal with 19 papers spanning the period from 1976 to 2012.
