Special Issue "Ecology and Evolution of Mammals in Europe"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 7 January 2024 | Viewed by 3614
This Special Issue of Diversity covers a wide range of scientific research on the synecology and autecology of mammals in Europe. These areas of study represent the peculiarities of the behavior and mutual relations of species as constituent elements of biocenoses and their existence as functional systems, including synergistic relationships. The morphology, taxonomy, systematics and phylogeny of specific species of mammals are a reflection of the history of their development over time and the general process of evolution, in combination with the conditions of existence in constantly changing environments. The unifying scientific theme of these two sections is paleoecology, which at the same time reflects the processes of adaptation (evolutionary morphology), taxonomic heterogeneity and the dynamics of climatic changes over time. This Special Issue mainly covers the late Neogene and Pleistocene of Europe with a regional approach.
