Willdenowia is an international peer-reviewed journal publishing original research papers in English from the entire fields of plant, algal and fungal systematics, covering the evolution, taxonomy and nomenclature of these organisms as well as related fields such as floristics and plant geography. Papers on phylogeny and molecular systematics are especially welcome, as are review papers. Descriptions of new taxa are considered, but preference is given to those supported by molecular evidence. Authors are encouraged to deposit vouchers of their material, especially nomenclatural types, at the Berlin herbarium (B).

Three issues appear each year, in April, August and December, in an open-access online edition and a print edition. Individual papers are normally published first in an issue in progress in the online edition, i.e. as the final version (the version of record), with final pagination, ahead of inclusion in the April, August or December issues. No open-access fees are payable by authors. The length of articles is not limited.

De Herbario Berolinensi Notulae

The precursor of Willdenowia was founded in 1895 as Notizblatt des Königlichen Botanischen Gartens und Museums zu Berlin to publish information about the institution's collections and activities, and research contributions from its staff and associated botanists. In 1919 renamed as Notizblatt des Botanischen Gartens und Museums zu Berlin-Dahlem it was discontinued in 1944, after the fatal destruction of much of the institution's collections and facilities in World War II. In 1953 it was revived, initially as Mitteilungen aus dem botanischen Garten und Museum Berlin-Dahlem, and continued with its present title commemorating Carl Ludwig Willdenow (1765-1812), director of the Botanic Garden and first professor of botany in Berlin.
