Marine Life publishes fundamental and applied research articles in the following fields:
› Marine biodiversity, biology and ecology, marine chemistry and biochemistry, relating to the life of organisms, population dynamics or biogeochemical cycles;
› Multidisciplinary studies, systems analysis and the modelling of metabolisms or processes;
› The commercial exploitation, redevelopment, sustainable management and socio-economic aspects of living resources and of protected marine areas;
› Eco-toxicology, damage and pollution affecting the marine environment.
The publication focuses mainly on the Mediterranean Sea, but also deals with other seas that are ecologically related, lagoons, coastal areas and the destructive impacts that may occur there.

When reference is made to several articles, they should be in strict chronological order: (Martin 1975, 1990; Abousoussan, 1983).
References that are hitherto unpublished or in the process of publication may be cited: (Martin, personal communication), or (Martin et al., in press).
