Special Issue Information
Diatoms are a group of unicellular, eukaryotic algae abundant in all aquatic habitats. They are a group of organisms that make up a significant part of the Earth’s biomass. The species diversity of diatom assemblages is also influenced by geographical factors. The dependence of diatom distribution on environmental conditions, especially in extreme borders, is still being investigated. A large number of ecologically sensitive species have allowed widespread monitoring of water quality using these algae. Among other organisms, many diatoms are considered endangered. This Special Edition introduces new data on the diversity and distribution of diatoms, the impact of human activity (anthropopressure), and climate change on algae communities.

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.
