Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
This Special Issue will comprise a selection of papers reporting recent advances on approaches to integrate concerns with disturbance agents (e.g., pests, diseases, wildfires and wind and snowstorms) in forest ecosystem management planning. The Special Issue aims to contribute to our understanding of disturbance agents and how they can be addressed in management planning and the assessment of ecosystem services. In this context, we welcome manuscripts that address challenges regarding (a) the characterization of disturbance regimes; (b) the ecology and management of disturbance agents; (c) the assessment of the impacts of disturbances on the provision of ecosystem services; (d) the integration of concerns with disturbance agents in management planning; and (e) the development of regulatory frameworks and policy analysis to address concerns about the impact of disturbance agents on forested landscapes.
