Special Issue Information
Biodiversity is a fundamental feature of nature and determines the diversity of ecosystems, species, and their genes. Greater biodiversity means a more stable environment, better functioning, and more resistance to changes. Organisms in ecosystems interact with each other. The loss of even one species does not go unnoticed, but it impairs the functioning of the entire ecosystem, making it less stable. Such changes are irreversible, and very often, they are caused by human activity. The loss of biodiversity is the greatest threat to the proper functioning of life on Earth. This Special Issue is devoted to various aspects of research on biodiversity carried out by Polish scientists. Manuscripts for this issue should focus on issues such as a) diversity of living organisms, b) influx of alien invasive species, c) environmental stressors and biodiversity, and d) protection of biodiversity.
