Review journals or journals with synthesis format contributions in EEB

Colleagues and I were checking through current journal listings that either explicitly focus on synthesis such as systematic reviews or include a section that is frequently well represented with synthesis contributions. Most journals in ecology, evolution, and environmental science that publish primary standard, research articles nonetheless also offer the opportunity for these papers too, but it can be less frequent or sometimes less likely to accept different forms of synthesis (i.e. systematic reviews in particular versus meta-analyses).
