Dear colleagues,

I have the pleasure to announce, and invite you to contribute to, a
special issue in the journal Diversity on the

"Molecular Biodiversity of Marine Invertebrates"

Marine invertebrate species are numerous in the marine environment. They
form hyperdiverse habitats, such as coral reefs, perform a multitude of
interconnected ecological roles, and provide ecosystems services and
livelihood to humans. Contrary to previous conceptions that the ocean
has no "boundaries", it has become clear in recent decades that the
genetic and species diversity of marine invertebrates is often highly
structured geographically. Understanding how this diversity is
distributed in time and space and what the causes are for (often
cryptic) speciation in the marine environment are necessary
prerequisites for biodiversity conservation and management in times of
rapidly changing marine ecosystems.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to showcase recent advances in
exploring the biodiversity of marine invertebrates from any habitat,
longitude or latitude, using molecular tools such as DNA sequencing
and/or genomics/transcriptomics, to further our understanding of the
spatiotemporal dynamics of invertebrate species diversity in the world's
largest three-dimensional habitat, the ocean.

I'd love to see your manuscript submitted to this special issue!
