Fellow turtle researchers:

Please consider contributing a manuscript to a special issue of the journal "Diversity" that i am guest-editing, devoted specifically to Advances in the Biology and Conservation of Turtles.

In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in research into the biology and conservation of turtles globally, especially regarding species that previously have received relatively little attention. New research has been aided by the use of traditional and cutting-edge techniques, from the use of tracking dogs to drones and eDNA. The development of well-supported turtle phylogenies makes interspecific comparisons particularly appealing.

I am seeking 5-15 special full-length manuscript contributions on turtle biology for publication in a special issue of Diversity (H index = 28, SJR rank 0.745).  Diversity (ISSN 1424-2818) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal on science and technology concerning diversity concepts and applications, diversity assessment and diversity preservation and is published by MDPI AG, Basel, Switzerland. This Special Issue provides a venue to highlight relatively novel and robust analyses and experiments involving turtles—understudied species, interspecific comparisons, new or neglected techniques. Each manuscript should have clear conservation implications.  Both research papers and review articles, especially meta-analyses, are welcome.

The deadline for manuscripts is 31 March 2019, but we can start processing and publishing them sooner.
