Symposium: Convergence in the evolution of obligatory blood feeding behavior
call closes when slots are filled
The evolution of obligatory blood feeding arthropods involve symbiotic relationship with bacterial symbionts to supplement their restricted diet. Diverse host taxa share the same phenotype, where symbionts are expected to supplement essential B vitamins. However, the symbiont origin and functions seem to be different in each group. With recent data obtained in various and different hosts, we believe it is timely to get together and discuss well studies systems to better understand the path of symbiont acquiring and maintenance by obligate blood feeders.
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.
