Different environmental stressors such as contaminants, temperature changes, salinity, micronutrient availability, pathogens and noise affect aquatic invertebrate physiology. Marine ecosystems must adapt to environmental stressors for example, by adapting their metabolic machinery to colonize new habitats and survive. These changes can also have an impact on biodiversity and natural resources. Different methods such as transcriptomics, proteomic and metabolomics have helped identify the impact of environmental stressors on these organisms.

This Research Topic aims to bring light on the physiological responses of aquatic invertebrates to pollution. In particular, this article collection welcomes studies investigating, but that are not limited to, the following areas:

- physiological responses (e.g. metabolic changes, cardiocirculatory alterations, motility modifications) to emerging contaminants
- multi-level and multi-species approaches
- combined effects of stressors, including contaminants and changing environmental parameters
- biomarkers of effects and exposure
- field and laboratory studies
- the use of model organisms to investigate changes at the cellular and immunological level

We welcome the submission of different article types to this collection, especially reviews, mini-reviews, and original research papers. For a complete list of article types that can be considered in the Aquatic Physiology section, please follow this link

Even though abstract submission is not mandatory, we encourage all interested researchers to submit an abstract before submitting their manuscript. Abstracts do not have to coincide with the final abstract of the manuscripts.

Keywords: aquatic invertebrates, pollution, environmental stress


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.
