    Special Issue on Forest Environment and Ecology

    The forest is nature’s most efficient ecosystem, with a high rate of photosynthesis affecting both plant and animal systems in a series of complex organic relationships.  Animals that live in forests have highly developed hearing, and many are adapted for vertical movement through the environment. Because food other than ground plants is scarce, many ground-dwelling animals use forests only for shelter. In temperate forests, birds distribute plant seeds and insects aid in pollination, along with the wind. In tropical forests, fruit bats and birds effect pollination. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in the area of forest environment and ecology.

    In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore forest environment and ecology. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Ecology and management of forests
    • Management and conservation of plantations and natural forests
    • The ecological role of forest resources
    • Relationship to other branches of ecology
    • Community diversity and complexity
    • Ecological potential of forest species

    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 - Forest Environment and Ecology” should be chosen during your submission.
