Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 3rd International Electronic Conference on Biological Diversity, Ecology and Evolution (IECD 2024), sponsored by the MDPI open access journal Diversity, will be held online from 15–17 October 2024. This event will enables researchers in the science of biodiversity to present their research and exchange ideas with their colleagues without the need for travel. All proceedings will be published on the conference homepage in an open access format.

Through this event, we aim to cover the following topics:

  Marine diversity;

  Animal diversity;

  Plant diversity;

  Microbial diversity and culture collections;

  Chemical biodiversity and chemical ecology;

  Biodiversity conservation;

  Biogeography and macroecology;

  Phylogeny and evolution;

  Biodiversity loss and dynamics;

  Mesophotic ecosystems diversity;

  Invasive species and diversity.

The conference will be completely free of charge—both to attend, and for scholars to upload and present their latest work on the conference platform.

For selected papers presented at the conference, authors are invited to submit their extended versions to this Special Issue of the journal Diversity with a 20% discount on fees. Submitted papers should be extended to the size of regular research or review articles, with at least a 50% extension of new results. All submitted papers will undergo our standard peer-review procedure. Accepted papers will be published in open access format in Diversity and presented on the Special Issue website. There are no page limitations for this journal.
