Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The distribution and assembly of species is affected by a range of environmental, temporal and geographic factors. Understanding how these factors relate to landscape genetic and genomic data provides us with empirically-based interpretations on the relative impact of selective filtering and biogeographic processes on the current distribution of species. At the single species level, such evolutionary ecology studies provide critical evidence to guide and support species management and conservation practices. At the multispecies levels, uniformly collected dataset provide a greater understanding of community assembly processes. This Special Issue gathers manuscripts describing and interpreting innovative landscape-level studies on the distribution of diversity (of single or multiple species) and the factors impacting on such patterns, and highlights broader management and conservation implications.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Diversity is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
