Symposium: Biology and Evolution of Social Insect Symbionts
call closes when slots are filled
A large number of arthropods make a living by exploiting social insect societies, but the study of these organisms remains in its infancy. The mechanisms employed to deceive and exploit social insect hosts are for the most part poorly understood; symbiont diversity and phylogenetic relationships are unclear, and insight into how such remarkable lifestyles evolved is mostly lacking. We here propose to bring together researchers from a range of disciplines and taxonomic groups to exchange insights, identify pressuring research questions, and potentially initiate new collaborations.
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.
