Aims and Scope

Invertebrate Biology presents fundamental advances in our understanding of the structure, function, ecology, and evolution of the invertebrates, which represent the vast majority of animal diversity.  Though ultimately organismal in focus, the journal publishes manuscripts addressing phenomena at all levels of biological organization. Invertebrate Biology welcomes manuscripts addressing the biology of invertebrates from diverse perspectives, including those of:   

         genetics, cell, and molecular biology

         morphology and biomechanics

         reproduction and development   

         physiology and behavior     


         evolution and phylogenetics
