Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Crustaceans include a large diverse group of animals in the marine environment. They can be present in the intertidal, coral reefs, shallow waters, deep-sea including hydrothermal vents and cold seeps and can be symbionts with a wide variety of organisms. The lifestyles and life cycles are extremely variable among taxon. Most of the species have bi-phasic life cycles in which the larvae are planktonic and the adults are benthic. The present issue gathers diverse aspects of crustacean research including ecology, diversity, taxonomy, phylogeny, phylogeography and larval biology of species that are present in the Indo-Pacific waters, which is one of the biodiversity hotspots in the world.
