Marine biodiversity and biogeochemical function - tools for sustainability in a changing world

Marine Biology Research (MBR) is now seeking submissions centering around the importance of marine biodiversity and biogeochemistry for achieving sustainability in a changing world for a Special Issue on the Sustainable Development Goal 14 ‘Life below water’, to be published in 2022.

In 2021 we are entering the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development as proclaimed by the United Nations with the goal to establish a framework to sustainably manage the ocean and to achieve the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development. To create an impactful contribution to this Decade of Ocean Science, this Special issue will focus on novel developments and applications of solutions based on marine biogeochemical cycles and ecology towards a sustainable ocean, supporting climate change mitigation and biodiversity protection.

This special issue therefore welcomes creative contributions that address SDG14. This includes, but is not limited to the following topics:

  • Sustainable exploration and management of marine resources
  • Biodiversity and conservation as tools to mitigate anthropogenic impacts and climate change
  • Pollutants, including heavy metals, oil, plastics, etc, in the marine realm
  • Coastal protection measures
  • Ocean negative emission technologies
  • Blue biotechnology

Submission Instructions

Submissions can include original research papers, comments/perspectives, position papers, and reviews, and should clearly indicate in the abstract how the presented research relates to SDG 14. Find out more about SDG 14, the full list of 17 UN SDGs, and why these have been selected as areas of global importance here.

When submitting, please chose the special issue title 'Marine biodiversity and biogeochemical function - tools for sustainability in a changing world' from the drop-down menu.

Abstracts can be submitted until June 30, 2021, full submissions should be submitted before July 31, 2021.
