Special Issue Information
Water quality is currently one of the main indicators of the standard of living; therefore, all developed societies are dedicating maximum efforts to providing the population and the economy with sufficient water of adequate quality. Most of the water comes from natural sources—rivers, lakes, and reservoirs, the quality of water in which it is necessary not only to assess but also to predict. Algae, being mostly autotrophs, form the basis of the trophic pyramid and are therefore the first to participate in the production of organic matter in the aquatic ecosystem but other organisms participate also. The characteristics of diversity, abundance, biomass, and species composition are used in bioindication methods when changing the trophic base. They provide an integrated assessment of the results of all processes occurring in a water body. Thus, this current Special Issue will collect works on the dynamics of algae and other aquatic organisms diversity in connection with changes in environmental and climate indicators using bioindication, statistics, and ecological mapping methods for the purposes of ecological assessment of surface and estuarine water quality and its forecasting.

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 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.
