Special Issue Information
We are currently inviting submissions of papers that address important questions to progress our knowledge and understanding of the biology and ecology of anguillid eels and ultimately contribute to a sustainable management solution of their populations in a global context. Anguillid eels have fascinated mankind for centuries due to of their complex life cycles and singular migration loops between freshwater and marine habitats. For over 30 years, there has been growing concern about the status of most anguillid eels, with declining stocks worldwide due to direct or indirect anthropogenic effects including overfishing, habitat loss, pollution, climate change, parasites and diseases. While considerable progress has been made in recent years to advance research in anguillid eels, there are still gaps in the knowledge, especially in the case of tropical anguillid eels. We invite papers and reviews on multidisciplinary topics in the broad field of biology and ecology, including biodiversity, systematics, phylogeography, population genetics, genomics and evolution.
