The open access quarterly journal, Diversity is dedicated to publishing the best of current science on the world's biodiversity. Recent articles have investigated the diversity of life in Urmia Lake National Park in northwest Iran, the tropical landscapes of Queensland, Australia, and the deserts of the United Arab Emirates. With a mix of editorials, studies of unique ecosystems, and broad ranging investigations of global phenomena, the journal presents a variety of excellent information. For example, readers interested in the effects of climate change might like to read "Assessing Climate Change Induced Turnover in Bird Communities Using Climatically Analogous Regions," an entry in the March 2015 issue. Meanwhile, those with a particular fascination for forests might like to peruse "Land and Forest Degradation inside Protected Areas in Latin America" in the December 2013 issue.
