Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Animals journal gives us, as a scientific community, the opportunity to group, in a single number, all of the existing knowledge in the field of rabbit research. For this purpose, this Special Issue will consist of two major sections, immunophysiology and pathology, which affects commercial, wild, experimental, and companion rabbits.

It would be interesting to receive research manuscripts in different areas, such as on the modifications of immunological cell populations in different physiological and pathological situations, experimental rabbit models for different diseases, diseases related to breeding in captivity or traditional, or emerging diseases affecting all type of rabbits, and so on.

An update of knowledge on these topics will allow for us to easily find and concentrate on the most recent information affecting rabbits, and I am convinced that it will constitute a reference number in immunology and rabbit pathology for everybody that works and studies rabbits.
