Description

Mammalian Biology (formerly Zeitschrift für Säugetierkunde) is an international scientific journal edited by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Säugetierkunde (German Society for Mammalian Biology). The journal is devoted to the publication of research on mammals. Its scope covers all aspects of mammalian biology, such as anatomy, morphology, palaeontology, taxonomy, systematics, molecular biology, physiology, neurobiology, ethology, genetics, reproduction, development, evolutionary biology, domestication, ecology, wildlife biology and diseases, conservation biology, and the biology of zoo mammals.

To qualify for publication, a manuscript must contribute to the understanding of mammalian biology by presenting either new and original research data (as a full article or in short communication format) or a thorough review of a particular topic of mammalogical research. Investigations using mammals merely as models or emphasizing experimental or veterinary aspects are of interest only if they are of substantial relevance to mammalogists. Studies testing explicitly formulated hypotheses are preferred to those presenting primarily descriptive results.

Due to its wide range of topics, Mammalian Biology is primarily of interest to scientists working in the listed various fields of mammalogy but also to biologists and zoologists in general as well as to veterinarians and medical scientists.

If you want to submit a paper dealing with phylogenetics and/or the splitting/description of (new) species, please follow the guidelines published in "Tree thinking and species delimitation: Guidelines for taxonomy and phylogenetic terminology" (Zachos, Frank E., 2016).

Authors of manuscripts introducing or describing new taxa and/or new taxon names are kindly asked to register them with ZooBank(http://zoobank.org/)upon acceptance of publication.

Submitting a manuscript previously rejected by another journal without notification and disclosure of previous reviews will lead to immediate rejection should it be uncovered. There is nothing wrong with being rejected and submitting to a different journal, but the referees' efforts should be taken into account and given credit. Please attach previous reviews and responses/rebuttals with your submission, following your cover letter.
