Single-celled protists and fungi (microbial eukaryotes) are important players in the microbial loop and biogeochemical cycles of coastal and marine ecosystems. They possess extensive taxonomic and functional diversity. Currently, molecular approaches have been widely applied to reveal their diversity at single-cell, population, community, and ecosystem levels. This Special Issue calls for original research studies and invites reviews on the taxonomy and phylogeny of microbial eukaryotes, particularly those that molecularly characterize the diversity, activity, ecological function, community organization, and spatial and temporal variations (biogeography) of planktonic and sedimentary microbial eukaryotes, as well as their interactions with organisms at various trophic levels and their physiological and ecological adaptations to specialized niches in natural, artificial, coastal, and marine habitats and systems.

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. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering 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.
