About this Research Topic
Biological Invasions aggregates multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary research delivered by a vibrant and innovative community of scientists. Yet, it has become difficult to find one outlet that delivers exceptional contributions showcasing the multiple subjects that support the research and management of Biological Invasions in marine and estuarine ecosystems. Therefore, this Research Topic intends to feature diverse and high-quality works that either focus on a particular species or that embrace a multi-, inter-, or transdisciplinary approach to quantify and tackle the problems that non-indigenous species pose per se, or in tandem with other stressors, to ecosystems and society.
We encourage the submission of seven types of articles, namely: Original Research; Hypothesis and Theory; Community Case Studies; Methods; Policy Briefs; Policy and Practice Reviews; Reviews. For more information on these article types please consult https://www.frontiersin.org/journals/marine-science#article-types.
We seek contributions that showcase the diversity of Biological Invasions studies in marine and estuarine ecosystems and embracing any type of organisms. Studies that connect Biological Invasions with other environmental stressors or interdisciplinary studies will be highly regarded.
Next, we present a list of subjects (in alphabetical order) that intertwine with Biological Invasions and fit into this Research Topic: Blue Economy; Citizen Science; Climate Change; Conservation; Cryptic Invasions; Ecology; Ecological and Economical Impacts; Ecosystem Functioning; Evolution; Genetics and Phylogeography; Invasion Dynamics (Introduction, Establishment, and Spread); Management and Policy; Monitoring; New Records; Risk Assessment; Sociology; Surveillance.
Please note that given the broad scope of this Research Topic, if your work is related to the Mediterranean Sea and adjoining seas, please directly submit your manuscript to this Research Topic instead:
"Biological Invasions in the Mediterranean Sea".
Keywords: Invasive Species, Non-indigenous species, Coastal areas, Estuaries
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
