15th International Scientific Wadden Sea Symposium Report

Importance of science for the management of the Wadden Sea World Heritage in the context of climate change


From 30.11. to 2.12.2021 more than 200 scientists from Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands presented and discussed the latest scientific findings on the status of the UNESCO World Heritage Wadden Sea at the 15th International Scientific Wadden Sea Symposium (ISWSS). The key outcomes of the presentations and discussions are summed up in this report.

You still have the possibility to publishing in the Topical collection "Biodiversity and Ecology of the Wadden Sea under changing environments".

Peer-reviewed publications of the topics presented at the ISWSS, but also of work being conducted beyond the symposium will be possible in the “Marine Biodiversity”. ISWSS papers will be published under the topical collection „Biodiversity and Ecology of the Wadden Sea under changing environments“ on the journal’s webpage. MARB publication style is ‘Continuous Article Publishing’, meaning that all papers are published online as soon as they are ready and immediately assigned to the issue.

As all papers must be within scope of Marine Biodiversity, all topics need to relate to marine biodiversity research, which most probably will include the contributions by the authors for the themes Birds, Marine Mammals, Alien Species, Sublittoral Habitats, Sustainable development – Eco and Fish. The journal’s submission guidelines provide the relevant instruction for authors, including the types of papers which can be considered for publication and the manuscript submission process. Please submit your paper here before 1 April 2023.
