Outcome: Rejected (im.).

The journal indicates that it is interested in Molluscan physiological papers, but the reasons given for manuscript rejection suggest that the focus is behavioral and ecology. This manuscript was rejected due to the lack of “relevance to field conditions” and “behavior in the field.” Although, I enjoy reading this journal, I would caution physiologist about submitting their manuscripts. On the other hand, behavioral scientist and ecologist would likely benefit from the very fast response times.
