Hydrobiologia publishes original articles in the fields of fundamental limnology and marine biology. A wide range of papers is published, including ecology, physiology, biogeography, methodology and taxonomy. Applied (technological) papers are also published, provided they are of general interest and not solely technical in nature.
Aims and Scope
Hydrobiologia publishes original research, reviews and opinions regarding the biology of all aquatic environments, including the impact of human activities. We welcome molecular-, organism-, community- and ecosystem-level studies in contributions dealing with limnology and oceanography, including systematics and aquatic ecology. Hypothesis-driven experimental research is preferred, but also theoretical papers or articles with large descriptive content will be considered, provided they are made relevant to a broad hydrobiological audience. Applied aspects will be considered if firmly embedded in an ecological context.
Hydrobiologia is no longer a preferred publication avenue for purely physical, chemical or toxicological studies, unless a clear link to biological aspects can be demonstrated.
Special issues on timely topics shall be considered through consultation with the editor. Identical standards of acceptance are rigidly applied for both special and regular issues.
