Special Issue "Fish Larval Biology and Ecology"
A special issue of Oceans (ISSN 2673-1924).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 April 2021).
Interests: estuarine ecology; biological invasions; fish migration
The dynamic interaction between fish larval stages and hydrographic conditions, physical, chemical, and biological environmental settings, as well as species biological traits, plays a pivotal role in recruitment variability. Additionally, the impacts of climate change and other anthropogenic stressors on aquatic ecosystems modulate several life history traits of fish larvae and their mortality, a dynamics that we still strive to understand and predict. Therefore, with this broad-scope Special Issue, we aim to illustrate the diversity of research fields focused on improving our knowledge of fish larval biology and ecology across the globe, either in oceanic, coastal, reef, or estuarine ecosystems.
We look forward to receiving your contributions to the Special Issue.
