Aims and Scope

IJDNE acts as a channel of communication for researchers from around the world working on a variety of studies involving nature and its significance to modern scientific thought and design. These studies have demonstrated the rich diversity of the natural world. Ecodynamics in particular aims to relate ecosystems to evolutionary thermodynamics in order to arrive at satisfactory solutions for sustainable development. The IJDNE also opens new avenues for understanding the relationship between arts and sciences.
