Special Issue in Toxics: Environmental and Biological Monitoring: Analytical Methods and Assessment
Special Issue Information
Vertebrate populations have decreased by more than 65% around the world since 1970, mainly due to loss of habitat, deforestation, and changes in land use toward industrialization, as well as intensive monoculture agriculture and livestock farming, leading to a greater use of chemicals (e.g., biocides, drugs), a larger emission associated with industrial environmental pollutants (mainly POPs and inorganic elements), and new emerging pollutants (like phthalates, bisphenols or perfluoroalkyls). These contaminants have acute (e.g., poisoning, intended or not) and, of major concern, subchronic/sublethal health effects (e.g., endocrine disruptors, decreased eggshell, reproductive/development, and immune failures, among others). Therefore, research in sources of exposure, subclinical effects, and the relationship to wildlife health should be identified. Biomonitoring of these substances and research on exposure and effect biomarkers are essential to know their distribution in ecosystems and to help in the management/assessment of risks for wildlife.
We are pleased to invite you to contribute with your original research articles or reviews for the Special Issue of Toxics on “Advances in Ecotoxicology and Wildlife Health”. The aim is to combine knowledge on environmental toxicology and its interaction with wildlife health by combining/updating data about on the occurrence, exposure, and effects on wildlife, through analysis of biomarkers and the most common chemicals.
Research areas may include the following (but not exclusively): analytical methods for wildlife biomonitoring of pollutants of concern and their effect and exposure biomarkers; routes of exposure and geographical distribution data; and, especially, repercussions on vertebrate animals, mainly subclinic and subchronic health effects.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Toxics 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 2000 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.
