The Marine and Freshwater Fungi specialty section of Frontiers in Fungal Biology publishes high-quality fundamental and applied research across all aspects related to fungi inhabiting environments closely associated with water, both marine and freshwater, liquid, frozen, hot or saline. Research of water-related mycobiome is a growing branch of fungal biology that studies the diversity, function, and evolution of fungi which are found in both natural and anthropogenic habitats, from rivers, oceans and lakes, groundwater, deep sea and glaciers, to water distribution systems and household wet cells.
We welcome studies focused on any lineage of the broad diversity of fungi, from zoosporic fungi to filamentous fungi and yeasts, as long as they are related to water-based environments. The themes can include phylogenetic insights, studies of adaptations to oligotrophic, polluted, saline, frozen or hot water environments, to genomics, transcriptomics and metagenomics approaches and interactions of marine and freshwater fungi with other microorganisms. We welcome descriptions of new species and datasets if they constitute unique resources of broad interests, and/or are accompanied with analysis producing important novel insights.
