    Special Issue on Animal Ethology

    Animal ethology is a discipline to research animal communication, emotional expression, social behavior, learning behavior and reproductive behavior. Since the twentieth century, with the rapid development of life science, especially the human genome and functional genome research, animal ethology has been particularly important. The research achievements of animal ethology not only have been applied for agriculture, animal husbandry and aquaculture, but also have significant impact on the development of the bionics, physiology, psychology, genetics and the theory of evolution.

    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring animal ethology. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Animal behavior models
    • Animal behavior experiments
    • Animal learning and cognition
    • Animal communication
    • Animal welfare
    • Applications of animal ethology

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Animal Ethology” should be chosen during your submission.
