Lead Guest Editor:

Scorpionism, although geographically limited, involves an at risk population of almost 2 billion and half people and is an actual public health problem, at various levels, in several parts of the world.To ultimately understand the practical aspects of these hazards in a better way and manage them, the collaboration of researchers working in any aspect related to scorpionism is needful.
Original research papers are solicited for this special issue on scorpionism which will provide a platform to all researchers working in all thematics regarding scorpions.
Aims and Scope:
1. Biogeography. 2. Ecology and biology of scorpions. 3. Epidemiology. 4. Identification of scorpion species. 5. Impact of climate variable on the incidence of scorpion stings. 6. Medicine. 7. Modelling and Prediction. 8. Toxinology. 9. Venomology.
