* Founded in Italy in 1919, «Theoretical Biology Forum» (formerly «Rivista di Biologia / Biology Forum») is one of the oldest biological journals in the world. It is devoted to theoretical biology, in its broadest sense. The journal aims at going beyond specializations, discussing, before a multidisciplinary audience, biological topics of general theoretical interest. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to): Evolutionary Biology, Developmental Biology, Molecular Biology, Neurosciences and Biology of Mind, Complexity of Biological Systems, Biomathematics, Biophysics, History and Philosophy of Biology. All topics are dealt with from a theoretical standpoint, the focus being on concepts rather than on technical details. Mathematical formalism is reduced to a minimum, so that articles are also accessible to non-specialists. Experimental papers are not accepted. «Theoretical Biology Forum» publishes research articles, reviews, 'perspective' articles, book reviews, letters to the editors. * Fascicoli / Issues * Cm 17,5 x 24,7 / ISSN 2282-2593 / ISSN elettronico 1825-6538 / Composizione in carattere (typeset in) Serra Dante
