Ecometabolomics is an emerging tool for ecological and environmental sciences. It aims to provide knowledge of the metabolic mechanisms underlying the responses of organisms, communities, and ecosystems to environmental shifts. Ecoetabolomics is especially timely now in the frame of current global change. The number of studies on this topic has exponentially grown since only ten years ago, when only a few seminal studies had begun to couple metabolomics to ecological studies in field conditions. This Special Issue of Metabolites on “Ecometabolomics” aims to provide the status-of-the art of Ecometabolomic studies, firstly presenting the most powerful metabolomic analysis techniques (different analytical platforms, tools for data processing and statistical analysis, sampling, and sample preparation) to be used as metabolomics analytical tools in ecological studies in field conditions. Second, this Special Issue aims to provide an overview of current studies showing the successful use of ecometabolomics in organisms’ responses to abiotic and biotic environmental changes in field conditions. Third, it aims to present the ecological and environmental studies where ecometabolomics can be of key use in the coming years. Manuscripts dealing with other pertinent challenging metabolomics issues are also highly desired.

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. Metabolites 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 1600 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.
