Since 1985, Symbiosis publishes original research that contributes to the understanding of symbiotic interactions in a wide range of associations at the molecular, cellular and organismic level. Reviews and short communications on well-known or new symbioses are welcomed as are book reviews. This spectrum of papers aims to encourage and enhance interactions among researchers in this rapidly expanding field.
Topics of interest include nutritional interactions; mutual regulatory and morphogenetic effects; structural co-adaptations; interspecific recognition; specificity; ecological adaptations; evolutionary consequences of symbiosis; and methods used for symbiotic research.
This is a transformative journal, you may have access to funding.
Submission Deadline: April 30, 2022 | Expected Early 2023
We seek contributions that build on the legacy of Dr. Lynn Margulis and explore the new directions and frontiers that have emerged directly or indirectly from the theory of symbiogenesis. In addition to Original Research articles, we also seek Review Articles and articles with a shorter format, including Ideas & Perspectives, and Natural History Notes (shorter research articles that introduce new ideas and hypotheses). Students and Early Career Researchers are especially encouraged to submit an Original Research article, Review article or an Ideas & Perspectives article.
Freely accessible until April 1, 2022
Professor Robert (Bob) Kent Trench’s research career brought together multiple disciplines in the study of mutualistic symbioses that are crucial to understanding the physiology, ecology, and co-evolution of metazoan and protist associations, many of which are beneficial to the Earth’s biosphere. Through the development and use of complementary techniques, he pioneered important discoveries about metabolically coupled interactions between “plants” and animals.
