    Special Issue on Evolutionary Biology


    Evolutionary biology is the subfield of biology that studies the evolutionary processes that produced the diversity of life on Earth, starting from a single common ancestor. These processes include natural selection, common descent, and speciation. Current research has widened to cover the genetic architecture of adaptation, molecular evolution, and the different forces that contribute to evolution including sexual selection, genetic drift and biogeography. The newer field of evolutionary developmental biology investigates how embryonic development is controlled, thus creating a wider synthesis that integrates developmental biology with the fields covered by the earlier evolutionary synthesis.


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

    • Genetic architecture of adaptation
    • Molecular evolution
    • Evolutionary ecology
    • Sexual selection
    • Phylogenetics and evolution
    • Evolutionary origin of biological function
    • Evolution of mammals
    • Reproductive biology and evolution

    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 – Evolutionary Biology” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
