Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Among the different socio-economic, scientific and integrated approaches toward a sustainable development, preservation and management of biodiversity is one of the less considered in scientific journals devoted to a broad readership. With this Special Issue, we want to provide an updated picture of the current challenges involving conservation biology, management and sustainability.
This Special Issue will comprise papers covering a wide range of aspects related to wildlife conservation and sustainability. In particular, we would like to highlight papers that cover successful histories in conservation that directly benefit local human populations. Papers addressing the positive impact of the establishment of protected areas, a reinforcement or a reintroduction of an endangered population, or some aspects of environmental education are especially welcome. We aim to cover examples from different regions of the world and from different anthromes. Integrating the concept of sustainability into conservation biology also means that we will welcome papers discussing the increase of ecosystem services due to conservation programs. Papers selected will offer examples of good practices in conservation actions (including land and aquatic ecosystems maintenance and biodiversity preservation) and in planning conservation programs.Dr. Emilio Padoa-Schioppa
