Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The rapid expansion of cities leads to a series of ecological and environmental problems, such as urban heat islands, air pollution, water pollution, etc., which directly affects human health and residents' well-being. With rapid urbanization, the interactions between landscape patterns and ecological processes have become more complex. Elucidating the relationship between urban landscape patterns and ecological effects is essential for understanding the formation and development of pollution and implementing effective mitigation measures.

The in-depth studies of the effects of urban landscape patterns on the environment are hindered by data limitations, unreliable methods, and complex processes. However, carrying out landscape ecological planning according to the principles of landscape ecology and deeply understanding the impact of landscape pattern changes on the urban environment can provide a scientific basis and practical means for alleviating the problem of "urban diseases" and is of great significance for the sustainable and healthy development of urban ecological security and the environment of human settlements.
