Special Issue "Larval Biology and Ecology of Marine Invertebrates"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Most marine invertebrates have planktonic larval and benthic adult stages. The larvae of benthic invertebrates compose the meroplankton in the zooplankton community. The development, biology, and ecology of meroplankton can subsequently affect the recruitment and sustainability of adult populations. The present topic covers different aspects of larval biology of invertebrates, including diversity, phylogeny, morphology, development, settlement, and recruitment.
