Special Issue on marine speciation

Published

Journal of Evolutionary Biology has published a special issue on speciation in marine environments. The volume originates from a session at CeMEB conference Marine Evolution 2018, and is edited by CeMEB Director Kerstin Johannesson and collegues.

Journal of Evolutionary Biology has published a special issue on speciation in marine environments. Guest editors Rui Faria, Kerstin Johannesson and Sean Stankowski have assembled contributions to highlight the need to learn more about marine speciation.

The editorial is a broad review of current research on marine speciation. The authors point out some specific research issues that are important for reaching a more comprehensive knowledge about the origin of species in the sea. Also, they conclude that enhanced understanding of marine speciation will improve marine biodiversity forecasting, and lead to more informed conservation measures for many marine organisms.

"We hope this special issue will highlight the many interesting examples of speciation that are available in the marine habitat, and encourage future research programmes to build on this with much new knowledge", says Kerstin Johannesson.
