Special Issue "Sustainability, Climate Change, and Ecology: Challenges and Opportunities"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2022) | Viewed by 7067
Interests: global change ecology; conservation biology; species distribution models; invasive species; vector-borne diseases; climate change
Biodiversity, ecosystem services, and food production rely on the availability of natural resources such as freshwater, soil quality, and habitat conservation, yet human activities overexploit natural resources at unsustainable rates, causing biodiversity crisis, food insecurity, and irreversible damage to the Earth’s ecosystems. These threats are now compounded by the impacts of global climate change, including increased frequency of extreme weather (e.g., droughts, floods). To address these issues, it is necessary to develop strategies that support environmental conservation and a sustainable use of natural resources.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to expand the state-of-the-art in strategies and management solutions that aim to mitigate and reduce human-induced threats to the environment.
The Guest Editors would welcome contributions on the following themes:
- Adaptation practices to climate adversities
- Ecosystem restoration
- Biodiversity conservation
- Groundwater overdraft reduction
- Best practices in soil conservation
- Sustainable forest management
- Sustainable fishing
- Sustainable livestock management
- Food security and climate change
- Community resilience in the face of climate change

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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.
