Special Issue "Social-Ecological Systems, Climate and Global Change Impacts"
A special issue of Climate (ISSN 2225-1154).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2018
Prof. Dr. Christine Fürst
This Special Issue will include articles from the 2017 IUFRO (International Union of Forest Research Organizations) 8.01.02 Landscape Ecology conference, which will take place in September, 2017, under the title "The Green–Blue Nexus". Particularly, the conference will address the conflict between provisioning services (biomass, food, fodder, etc. = the "Green") and regulating services (e.g., drinking water provisioning, irrigation water, flood and erosion control = the "Blue") in relation to other impacts on biodiversity and the supporting structures and key ecological processes that enable the supply of these services. Focus of the conference will be laid on forest ecosystems, but we will reflect their services supply capacities in their specific social–ecological system context. Important drivers, such as climate and global change and their impacts on ecosystem functioning, processes, pattern, and services will be discussed and policy implications will be derived.
