Special Issue Information
The continuous expansion of mites and ticks around the globe represents an agricultural and public health challenge. Studying fundamental biological and ecological traits is critical to developing sustainable management strategies in agricultural settings and understanding the epidemiology of vector-borne diseases. This Special Issue on “Research and Advances in Acarology” will consider all original research articles, reviews, mini-reviews, and perspectives on basic and applied research of mites and ticks for publication after rigorous peer review.
