Symposium: Hormones and behavior in insects: mediation and potential disruption
call closes when slots are filled
Hormones can mediate numerous behaviors (mating, contest, sociality…). However, the individual or combined actions of Juvenile Hormones and ecdysteroids on behaviors is still largely unknown in insects. Complementary techniques, such as hormone quantification, manipulation (antagonists, RNAi, CRISPR…) and -omics approach, are developed to increase our understanding of how hormones control behaviors. Due to intensive agriculture and anthropisation, insects can be exposed to different endocrine disruptors. Studying the effects of these contaminants on their behavior is thus a current major issue
Journals participating in Peerage of Science
Available before, during and after the peer review process. All Select destinations have concurrent access to all ongoing peer review processes, and the right to make direct publishing offers to you. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
Available only after the peer review process is complete. Submission to a Connect destination exports the process exclusively and cancels any existing offers from The Select destinations (the traditional "no simultaneous consideration" policy). However, you can cancel export later by exporting to another Connect destination, or by returning the process to full availability. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
You can create a link to the peer review process and give it to editors of any journal of your choice in a traditional submission. Using the link is a free service for both you and the receiving journal.
