Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Marine ecosystems hold a great variety of species, especially invertebrates, that have evolved and adapted to sustain the conditions of all typed of marine environments. In fact, species whose ecology and physiology are still unknown can reveal extraordinary adaptations to some of the harshest habitats on Earth. This is especially relevant due to ongoing environmental changes. These mechanisms and disciplines, which are sometimes overpassed in biotechnology, can give us important clues for a more sustainable and oriented bioprospection, focused on a bottom-up approach. As such, the aim of this Special Issue is to publish original works related to ecological, physiological, and behavioral traits from various marine invertebrates that provide an indication of marine bioproducts.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Animals is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
