New article requests[edit]

Please add requests for new articles here, including missing articles updated by the bot below in the "Pages needing attention" section. The goal is to have no broken links from articles on sustainability, environment, or ecology. This list is indiscriminate. If there are specific items on this list you are interested in, add them to the approriate area in Requested articles (probably science)

Expand articles[edit]


Articles needing cleanup:


Verify new articles by adding reliable references.


Add internal links to articles:

  • Add {{Portal|Ecology}} to the See also sections of ecology-related articles. This places the following portal link in articles:


Categorize ecology-related articles:

Create templates[edit]

Create useful templates for use in Wikipedia articles:

Note: Subcategories, rather than templates, would often be appropriate
See also: WikiProject Ecoregions is tackling ecoregions, ecozones, etc.
Completed templates

External pages[edit]

  • Discuss with organizations the possibility of licensing their information under GNU FDL or a compatible license


  • Create tools to automate and generate a "requested articles" list.

Article assessment[edit]

  • Add the {{Ecology}} project template on talk pages to enable article assessment, then assess per assessment criterion.
  • In the process, determine how many articles fit within this topic. Develop or use bots to mark articles to quantify ecology-related articles and to encourage editors to assess them.

Scientific Peer Review[edit]

Peer review at this project is no longer active and scientific articles should be directed to the general Wikipedia peer review. Reviews of articles that were completed are archived here.


As noted at Talk:Environmental chemistry please do any work in consensus with other editors. Removing large sections leaving bare headings is not the right way to proceed.  Velella  Velella Talk   08:50, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
