    Special Issue on Ecosystem Monitoring and Assessment

    Most of the natural ecosystems on the earth have the characteristics of maintaining stability and keeping balance, which is the result of long-term biological evolution. However, due to the rapid development of social economy, the acceleration of industrialization and urbanization, and the predatory exploitation of natural resources by human beings, these disturbing and coercive factors aggravate the environmental degradation and ecological degradation. Therefore, how to use scientific and technological means to monitor and evaluate the development status, development level and development trend of natural ecosystems in order to achieve healthy and sustainable development is a hot research topic.

    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring ecosystem monitoring and assessment. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Ecological monitoring technology
    • Ecological monitoring index system
    • Ecological risk monitoring
    • Assessment of ecosystem service value
    • Assessment of ecological restoration
    • Analysis of ecosystem health

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.

    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Ecosystem Monitoring and Assessment” should be chosen during your submission.
