Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
As a result of anthropogenic forcing, climate change has become an unprecedented challenge to marine life, with species relying on their capacity to acclimate, adapt or move, to thrive in or even survive forthcoming environmental threats. The associated environmental-related changes have prompted significant effects at different levels of biological organization, culminating in community structure modifications, range shifts, and biodiversity loss. Within this context, we have the pleasure to invite you to contribute to a Special Issue focused on the impacts of global environmental change (e.g., ocean warming, ocean acidification, and deoxygenation) on the marine biota. Our Special Issue will take into consideration studies performed under a broad set of subjects and disciplines, ranging from experimental biology (at a molecular, organism, and population level) to species phenology, comparative physiology and biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, ecotoxicology, fisheries, biological invasions, population dynamics, ecosystem functioning, and ecological forecasting. We invite scientists to provide their scientific-based insight and deliver the most recent and updated available knowledge on the addressed topics within a multidisciplinary and integrative perspective.

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. Biology is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2700 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.
