About the Journal
Bioresources mean any resource of biological origin. They are defined as living-based materials and processes which are naturally and sustainably renewable and biodegradable. Bioresources are important key drivers in present and future socio-economic evolutions due to their renewability. The exploitation of bioresources offers a massive potential to solve environmental problems including replacing non-renewable energy, reducing pollution, preventing global warming, as well as solving food shortages. However, continuous environmental deterioration due to overpopulation, pollution, and deforestation has been identified as a major threat to the depletion of bioresources.
Environment refers to either actual physical surroundings or social to cultural background factors and they are interchangeable with each other with an ecological term 'ecosystem'. The surrounding includes soil, land surface, surface waters (including streams, ponds, drainage basins, wetlands, and ocean waters), groundwaters, drinking water supply, stream sediments, surrounding air (including indoor air), diversity in plant and animal life, and any other environmental medium or natural resource. The environment is crucially important for human populations and well-being, as well as for the health and livelihoods of overall ecosystems.

Bioresources and Environment (BioEnv) is a peer-reviewed, international open-access, and interdisciplinary publication forum focusing on issues related to biological, environmental, and social aspects of global sustainable development. Biological resources and the environment are intricately intertwined, but it has taken a while for the general public to recognize this connection. This crucial feature of sustainability is beginning to attract the attention of interdisciplinary research communities; however, much more work is required.
This journal focuses on the links between environmental and biological resources, as well as the ongoing need for a more holistic approach to their management. Research that integrates bioresources, environmental sciences, environmental management, conservation, and other relevant concerns is also encouraged. The journal aims to be an invaluable reading material not just for academics, but for industries, policymakers, and other interested parties.
BioEnv is published online in February, June, and October by Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM). This journal welcomes English-written original full research papers, short communication, and review articles for rapid dissemination. There will be no article publication charge (APC).
