Galapagos Research

Galapagos Research (formerly Noticias de Galápagos) is the research journal of the Charles Darwin Foundation for the Galapagos Islands. It publishes research articles, archival value news items ("News from Academy Bay") and more general or popular articles ("Galapagos Commentary"). The Journal covers topics relevant to science or nature conservation in Galapagos, including natural history, biology, ecology, evolution, systematics, conservation biology, geology, geography, history, human activity, and the management of biological diversity. Material from other geographical areas may also be included, if it is of immediate relevance to science or conservation in Galapagos.


All the previous Galapagos Research issues are available for download in PDF format.


The mission of the Charles Darwin Foundation and its Research Station is to tackle the greatest threats and challenges to Galapagos through scientific research and conservation action, in order to safeguard one of the world’s most important natural treasures.
