Special Issue Information
In these times of climate change, eutrophication and pollution, more discussion about aquatic biodiversity is needed. This Special Issue of Water focuses on the diversity of organisms in different water bodies, their threats and conservation. Hydrobiological, long-term and paleoecological studies will reveal the extent to which the biodiversity of aquatic environments is changing in the Anthropocene, and show how organisms evolve and adapt to new aquatic conditions.
The Guest Editors will consider papers addressing surface water, groundwater, and/or integrated water resource management, which are of interest to work out how aquatic organisms are impacted by multiple stressors.
Threats to aquatic biodiversity will focus on the loss and degradation of habitats, invasive species, pollution, climate change and human activities affecting biodiversity in water.
On the other hand, biodiversity protection can be discussed at several levels: molecules, populations, species, assemblies, ecosystems and on a global scale.
Both research papers and review papers are welcome.
