Mini-Review

Because of its practical character, wildlife science needs opportunities to run through the existing information by reviewing already published data or summarising complex knowledge of selected scientific or management problems, using however a more concise and simple presentation.

What is CrossRef?

Crossref Badge
Crossref is a simple way to cite or link an article published at Wildlife Biology in Practice using doi.
The digital object identifier (DOI) may be used to cite and link to electronic documents. The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is a system for identifying content objects in the digital environment. DOIs are names assigned to any entity for use on digital networks. They are used to provide current information, including where they (or information about them) can be found on the Internet. Information about a digital object may change over time, including where to find it, but its DOI will not change.
The DOI system provides a framework for persistent identification, managing intellectual content, managing metadata, linking customers with content suppliers, facilitating electronic commerce, and enabling automated management of media. DOIs can be used for any form of management of any data, whether commercial or non-commercial.
The system is managed by the International DOI Foundation, an open membership consortium including both commercial and non-commercial partners, and has recently been accepted for standardisation within ISO. Over 20 million DOIs have been assigned by DOI Registration Agencies in the US, Australasia, and Europe.
Using DOIs as identifiers makes managing intellectual property in a networked environment much easier and more convenient, and allows the construction of automated services and transactions.

The correct format for citing a DOI is shown as follows:

doi:10.2461/wbp.2005.1.1

When you use the DOI to create URL hyperlinks to documents on the web, they are guaranteed never to change.

Complete the following steps to resolve a DOI:
1. Open the following DOI site with your browser: http://dx.doi.org
2. Enter the entire DOI citation in the text box provided, and then click Go.
The article that matches the DOI citation appears in your browser window.
