||The Austrian Zoological-Botanical Society (ÖZBG) is a nonprofit
organization dedicated to stimulating the study of scientific zoology, botany
and ecology, promoting research on the fauna and flora, and mediating contacts
between scientists and with the interested public.
||The activities of the Society and events in the field of natural sciences
are reported several times per year in the Mitteilungen. The
Verhandlungen appear once a year and are open to all authors who wish
to publish original work with an ecological or systematic content that has
a bearing on Austria or its neighboring countries. The Abhandlungen,
which appear at irregular intervals, are monographic in character and serve
to publish more comprehensive works. The Koleopterologische Rundschau
is published in cooperation with the Wiener Coleopterologenverein.
||The library encompasses monographs along with currently ca. 1000 periodicals
that have been obtained through library exchange programs. It is open to
all interested parties.
