Poultry microbiota and microbiota of other animals with economic importance are expanding rapidly, leading to increased expectations around productivity and sustainability in animal production that can be optimized by microbiota manipulation. Next-generation sequencing metagenomics can be used as a tool for sequencing all the nucleic acids of microbial origin, including bacteria, protozoa, fungi, and archaea, which are hosted at distinct concentrations, to accomplish complete digestion of poultry and domestic animals.
The intestinal microbiome protects the host animal against dietary exchange, environmental stress, and diseases through various mechanisms, including the modulation of the immune system, promoting health and productivity in animals. The perturbation of this commensal microbiota can result in intestinal disorders such as dysbiosis, enteritis, nutrient malabsorption, and diarrhea. These health problems represent major welfare and economic concerns in the current intensive herbivorous and ruminant production systems.
Compounds, natural phytogenic feed additives, enzymes, essential oil, and 2nd fermentation metabolites modulate gastro-intestinal microbiota in animals or prevent digestion disorder. Papers that focus on the mechanism of microbiota and ecology, gastro-intestinal microflora manipulation, animal product quality, and animal welfare are particularly welcome.
We invite original research papers that address intestinal microbiota influenced by diets, fermentation products or byproducts, environment stress, weanling, nutrient imbalance, feed additive manipulation approaches, and diarrhea problems in poultry and other animals.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Fermentation 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.
