As a classical discipline in the field of life sciences, research directions in zoology and related fields such as Animal Genetics and Evolution, Animal Diversity and Protection and Utilization, and Primates and Animal Models are not only the basis of various fields of research, but also play important roles in the development of multidisciplinary integration. To track frontier research in the field of zoology, strengthen communication among researchers, and promote cooperation and development of related disciplines, we are holding the 2023 Frontiers in Zoology Forum based on the successful hosting of the forum in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2021. As such, we kindly invite experts and scholars from various research institutes to participate in the forum to exchange viewpoints and progress and further the advancement of frontier science.

Established in 1980, Zoological Research (ZR) is a bimonthly publication produced by Kunming Institute of Zoology, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the China Zoological Society. ZR is now covered by Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI-E), with full coverage to be backdated to issue 1 in 2016. It publishes peer-reviewed original research article/review/report/commentary/letter to the editor/editorial in English on Primates and Animal Models, Conservation and Utilization of Animal Resources, and Animal Diversity and Evolution.
