Special Issue "The Role of the Hydrologic Regime and Environmental Changes in Algal Communities Development"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2020.
Interests: Planktonic and Bentic Algae; Running and Standing Water, Water Quality; Pollution; Eutrophication
Algae are a diverse group of organisms comprising several taxonomical and functional groups. Algae are important indicators of environment changes, since they respond immediately to natural or human-dependent hydrologic alterations, such as increases in water pollution caused by domestic and industrial wastes, by both qualitative and quantitative species variations. They can also affect water composition, moderating the impact of deleterious changes. At any point, the abundance and community patterns of algae in a water system reflect precisely the water quality. Algae can be used to compare relative variations in water quality in terms of habitat variability or time.
This Special Issue of Water will focus on algal ecology and welcomes theoretical and experimental studies on how various standing and running water systems impinge directly on algae composition through their hydrologic regime and physical and chemical features. The Guest Editor will consider papers addressing planktonic and benthic algae and their interactions with the environment in any aquatic system. This Special Issue is open to submissions from all scientists around the world.

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. Water 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.
