Call for papers: Limnology and Oceanography Special Issue on Nonlinear Dynamics, Resilience, and Regime Shifts in Aquatic Communities & Ecosystems

Manuscripts due January 15, 2021

Limnology & Oceanography will be publishing a special issue, entitled “Nonlinear dynamics, resilience, and regime shifts in aquatic communities and ecosystems” and edited by Special Issue Editors David Seekell, Sally Holbrook, James Heffernan and Michael Pace. We welcome submissions from all interested researchers who work in this area.

The emphasis of the Special Issue for Limnology and Oceanography will be on advancing our understanding of ecological resilience derived from studies of marine, estuarine and freshwater ecosystems. Topics include, but are not limited to, causes and consequences of regime shifts, reversibility of regime shifts, shifting baselines, early warning indicators of alternate states, indicators of community resilience and processes that foster or prevent self-reinforcing alternative community states. Studies may focus on physical, chemical, or biological processes, or include interactions between humans and the natural environment. Reviews, secondary analyses, and meta-analyses are also welcome in addition to standard manuscripts that use primary data. Using primary data to build upon past studies to characterize resilience is also strongly encouraged.

The deadline for manuscript submission is January 15, 2021. Earlier submissions are encouraged, and papers will be published online upon acceptance with a DOI and will be searchable and citable. Articles should be submitted through ScholarOne at the Wiley Limnology & Oceanography website:
https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/lo. Please identify your submission for consideration in the “Resilience” issue. For more information please contact one of the Special Issue Editors below or the Deputy Editor-in-Chief, Maggie Xenopoulos: mxenopoulos@trentu.ca.
