Special Issue "Phylogeny, Taxonomy and Ecosystems of Lichens"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 December 2023 | Viewed by 3698
We are pleased to announce a forthcoming Special Issue of Diversity focused on lichen taxonomy and phylogeny, as well as the ecosystems of lichen.
About 20,000 species of lichens have been reported in the world; however, there are still a large number of lichen species that remain unknown, and many groups of lichens, especially crustose lichen, still lack a phylogenetic study. This means that the species boundaries are rather blurry and the phylogenetic relationship is unclear.
The current Special Issue of Diversity would like to invite lichenologists from all over the world, to focus on the taxonomy and phylogeny of poorly studied lichen groups (e.g., many crustose groups, such as Acarosporaceae, Caliceaceae, Lecanoraceae, etc...), to build a better understanding of the lichen phylogenetic relationship and species delimitation, and improve the understanding of lichen diversity worldwide.

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. Diversity 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 2600 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.
