Special Issue "Genetics and the Wolves: From Evolution to Conservation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 August 2023) | Viewed by 1612
Interests: conservation; genetics; genomics; adaptation; hybridization; human–wildlife conflict
Wolf conservation worldwide is at a crossroads: on one side, endangered populations still struggle to survive, whereas many others are expanding after centuries of decline, challenging our ability to promote a sustainable coexistence with human activities.
In this context, the steep advances in genetics and genomic approaches provide unprecedented support to effectively monitor populations, reconstruct the phylogeny of related species, subspecies and populations, map evolutionarily important genetic variants associated with adaptive variation, identify even subtle traces of hybridization with domestic dogs and better reconstruct the long history of domestication. In this Special Issue, we seek to gather the most up-to-date studies on the genetics and genomics of this focal species, from both an evolutionary and conservation point of view, by inviting a wide range of paper submissions, including research papers, short notes and reviews.

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.
