Special Issue Information
Water ecosystem services are critical to human well-being, which is defined as the natural environmental conditions and utility of human beings to survive by water ecosystems and ecological processes. With the rapid development of the economy and the rapid growth of the population, human beings are over-developed to soil resources, causing a decline in water ecosystem function. Water ecosystem functions play a key role in supporting and protecting regional ecosystems, which is very important to ensure regional ecological security and optimizing land spatial patterns. Effective management is critical to coordinating the conflict between water ecology and soil resources development.
In this sense ,this special issue “Advances in Assessing Water Ecosystem Services for Water Resource Management” encourages submission of basic research papers and to use-oriented contributions to assess the service functions of water ecosystems under water resource management system, thereby assessing the improvement potential of water resources management system. The potential topics of this special issue include, but are not limited to following:
