Special Issue "Carbon-Water Relationships of the Forest Ecosystem under a Changing Climate"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 June 2022 | Viewed by 7074
Carbon assimilation and water consumption are two fundamental processes for forests. Investigating the relationships between these two processes is significant in order to understand the formation of ecosystem services that are indispensible for human living. Climate change can strongly alter the carbon-water relationships of forest ecosystems, which vary across ecosystems and are also dependent on regional climate and soil features. The change in carbon-water relationships is also related to what ecological level we focus on, for example, the individual tree, forest stand, and biome. Different kinds of methodology are therefore applied, from in situ monitoring to remote sensing inversion. With this Special Issue, we intend to collect research works on this topic, in order to make the patterns and possible determinants of changing carbon-water relationships of forest ecosystems over the world clearer. You are warmly welcome to submit your works on this topic whereever conducted and from whichever point of view.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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.
