As research in disciplines including soil and water quality, and sustainability of soil and other resources, continues to advance, the contribution of freshwater wetland soils and their microorganisms to these disciplines should not be overlooked. Microorganisms of freshwater wetland soils impact ecosystem services; water quality; biogeochemical cycling of C, N, and P; and greenhouse gas emissions in many terrestrial environments. There is a need for more information about freshwater wetland soil microorganisms, their attendant biogeochemical and other activities, and their relationships to the plants and animals they associate with, to help us better understand wetland soil biology/microbiology, to conserve wetland resources, and to better plan and implement agricultural and other practices on the terrestrial landscape.
For this Special Issue of Microorganisms, we invite you to send contributions concerning any aspect of freshwater wetland soil microbiology and attendant biogeochemistry.

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 papers will be 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. Microorganisms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
