Marine Ecology Progress Series

The leading journal in its field, MEPS covers all aspects of marine ecology, fundamental and applied. Topics covered include microbiology, botany, zoology, ecosystem research, biological oceanography, ecological aspects of fisheries and aquaculture, pollution, environmental protection, conservation, and resource management. MEPS aims for the highest quality of scientific contributions, quick publication, and a high technical standard of presentation.
