ISI 2013 impact factors for the top 40 ecology journals

The new impact factors (for 2013) are out, and as in the last years (JCR 2012, JCR 2011 and JCR 2010), I list the 40 most highly cited journals indexed by the ISI Web of Knowledge under the subject “ecology”. To give you a reference to the general journals: Nature is now at 42.351, Science at 31.477, Plos Biology at 11.771, PNAS at 9.809, and PLOS ONE at 3.534.
