Animal Diversity

A section of Diversity (ISSN 1424-2818).

Section Information

This section deals with all aspects of animal diversity, from evolution, to phylogeny, adaptation, and conservation, from the species up to community interactions with ecosystems. As Diversity is a generalist journal, specialized or local studies will be evaluated only if discussion leads to/illustrates general questions/conclusions in relation with diversity. Experimental and field studies are favored, but theoretical studies will be considered if dealing with an original approach to evaluate animal diversity.
