Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The past few decades have witnessed remarkable advances in our understanding of marine mammals, but many unanswered questions remain. These include fundamental questions in all biological disciplines as well as other basic and applied/clinical sciences. Major technological advances have also spurred on many recent studies of marine mammals.
Contributions for this Special Issue are invited in all areas of marine mammal research, especially those that focus on health, conservation, and physiology. In particular, contributions that focus on changing ocean habitats and technological advances in our study of changing oceans are welcomed. These can include, but are not limited to, pathogenic viruses and microbes, trophic changes, fishery impacts, habitat destruction, changes in climate/temperature, ocean acidification, ocean pollution (from noise, plastic, chemicals, etc.), vessel traffic and ship strikes, and other related topics.
Submissions may focus on any area of marine mammal research and health, including but not limited to ecology, conservation, population biology and management, behavior, habitat and distribution, genetics, evolution, physiology, anatomy, acoustics, effects of noise and pollution, and new technologies.
