Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The global clearing of woody vegetation is a greenhouse gas emission source. While there is evidence that the terrestrial carbon sink has increased, recent widespread forest mortality climate related events indicate these sinks’ vulnerability. This has implications for global approaches to climate change mitigation that involve the creation of forest and woody vegetation sinks. Forest adaptation and mitigation are not goals within their own right; these activities further the objectives of agricultural production and sustain environmental services and, consequently, they support community livelihoods. Without a strong financial incentive, these will be the objectives that can drive the adoption of forest management policies that increase forest carbon sequestration.

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Forests is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 800 CHF (Swiss Francs).
