Journal of Experimental Biology is the leading primary research journal in comparative physiology and publishes papers on the form and function of living organisms at all levels of biological organisation, from the molecular and subcellular to the integrated whole animal.

Our authors and readers reflect a broad interdisciplinary group of scientists who study molecular, cellular and organismal physiology in an evolutionary and environmental context.

Predicting the Future: Species Survival in a Changing World

Guest editors: Craig E. Franklin and Hans H. Hoppeler

In a series of Reviews by experts working across different taxa and environmental drivers, this special issue explores the significant role of experimental biology in assessing and predicting the susceptibility or resilience of species to future, human-induced environmental change. It highlights the need for data sharing and better integration across scientific disciplines if we are to address the impacts humans are having on our physical and natural world.
