    Aims and Scope


    Biologia publishes high-quality research papers in the fields of microbial, plant and animal sciences. The papers on microbial sciences cover all aspects of Bacteria, Archaea and microbial Eucarya including biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics. The papers on plant sciences cover fundamental research in taxonomy, geobotany, genetics and all fields of experimental botany including cellular, whole-plant and community physiology. The papers on zoology cover mostly animal systematics and taxonomy, morphology, ecology and physiology from cellular to molecular level.    

    Every Issue of Biologia will contain the papers from all the above- mentioned fields of biology. Full-paper contributions should present original experimental, methodological or theoretical research. Review articles are preferably by invitation but unsolicited reviews are equally welcome. Journal also publishes short and preliminary communications of outstanding scientific importance.
