The topics of present interest for JMBA are: - Marine ecology, behaviour and fisheries; - Biodiversity and population studies of marine ecosystems, especially potential impacts of global warming, ocean acidification and climate change on ecosystem resilience; - Physiology, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology of marine organisms, including microbiology, particularly related to the integrative ecophysiology of marine organisms - Taxonomic syntheses, including molecular phylogenies; - Morphology, life history and developmental biology of marine organisms, especially model systems; - Chemical and physical oceanography, as directly relevant to marine biology; - Marine environmental health, and in particular its relationship to human health and well-being. In addition to papers describing original research, the journal will also publish short reviews and original viewpoints on topics of current marine biological interest.
