Message from the Guest Editor

This volume aims to contribute to advancing or reviewing phylogenomic, biogeographic, and evolutionary research trends in arachnid research. We welcome your original research papers, perspectives, and reviews with a focus on any arachnid order, on any evolutionary topic, from any region of the globe. Taxonomic papers are welcome, as long as they advance our understanding of arachnid evolution, biogeography, or phylogenetic systematics.

I am looking forward to your submissions.

Diversity (ISSN 1424-2818) is a scholarly journal that covers all areas of diversity research. Our distinguished editorial board and refereeing process ensures the highest degree of scientific rigor for publishing. Original research articles and timely reviews are released online, with unlimited free access.

We invite papers and reviews on multidisciplinary topics of diversity that bridge organismic diversity (systematics, biodiversity, phylogeny, population genetics, and evolution) and molecular diversity (phytochemistry and biophysics).
