What are good toplevel categories for an EEB preprint service?

While preprints will be able to have tags assocaited with them (like keywords), we also want some toplevel categories that people can browse generic viagra by. Our initial ‘category’ list is as follows:

population ecology
community ecology
ecosystem ecology
evolutionary ecology
macroecology
phylogenetics
population genetics
oceanography
geology
conservation biology
bioinformatics
ecoinformatics
animal behaviour
systematics
biogeography

This would be for something like a fine-grained page, perhaps with some of those categories nested within bigger toplevel categories. Picture this like the breakup plos one does. We’d initially populate a list, but then after 2 months of usage, or so, see what tags had come up as new ‘categories’ through sheer commonness of usage.

For initial display on the front page, however, we wanted an even coarser grained list of Toplevel Topics. Here’s the list we ended up with. Picture a front page with 2-3 articles listed from each topic – say, the latest submitted, or hottest, or highest rated in the last week.

Ecology
Evolutionary Biology
Environmental Sciences
Earth Sciences
Oceanography

This seems sufficient as toplevel topics…but, thoughts?
