Molecular ecology is a recent discipline concerned with the application of molecular and evolutionary biology to questions in ecology. Contributions in molecular ecology utilize DNA, gene expression data and quantitative traits for inference about ecological and evolutionary processes in the field.
The "Advances in Molecular Ecology" issue will consider studies of natural variation, demographic processes, molecular adaptation, population structure and phylogeography, environmental genomics, landscape genetics and biodiversity. Submission of theoretical studies using computer simulations and developing new analytical methods are also encouraged.
