Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Here at IJERPH we look forward to receiving your paper for a forthcoming Special Issue entitled “Health Impact of Heavy Metal and Organic Pollution in the Marine and Terrestrial Environment”.

In this Special Issue, we shall answer the following questions:

  • What are the interrelations between ecosystem services and human or environmental health in an ecosystem?
  • What are the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats involved in methods of dealing with pollution in marine and terrestrial habitats?
  • How can we measure, assess, and picture the link between organisms in terms of pyramids of energy, biomass and number and pollutants?
  • What is the extent of the bioaccumulation and biomagnification of heavy metal and organic pollutants in consumers and producers upon exposure to toxicants in the environment?

Your paper will undergo a rapid, high-quality peer review by expert reviewers and an international editorial board. We will also ensure global visibility of your article is achieved.
