Call for contributions: Special issue in Frontiers in Forests and Global Change

The journal Frontiers in Forests and Global Change is calling out for contributions to a special issue on Forest Monitoring to assess Forest Functioning under Air Pollution and Climate Change.

The journal Frontiers in Forests and Global Change is calling out for contributions to a special issue on Forest Monitoring to assess Forest Functioning under Air Pollution and Climate Change

Contributions should be related to the scope of the 9th ICP Forests Scientific Conference and emphasize long-term forest monitoring series, leading to a better understanding of the climate change and air pollution effects on European forest ecosystems.

Special attention is put on contributions from eLTER, the UNECE International Cooperative ProgrammesICOSDrought-NetInternational Tree Mortality Network and from national/regional networks such as National Forest Inventories or TreeNet

Quick facts about the special issue:

  • Guest editors Dr. Marcus SchaubProf. Arthur Gessler, and Dr. Marco Ferretti.
  • Topics: novel modeling and remote sensing approaches, fusion of long-term data series with models and integrated assessments of long-term trends, from local scale to continental, hemispherical and global scale.
  • Publication types: research papers, opinion papers as well as data papers on mechanistic observational studies (short- and long-term), experimental manipulative studies (either under controlled facilities or in the field).

You can provide your feedback and return a list of potential contributors until 21 September 2020 to  Dr. Marcus SchaubProf. Arthur Gessler, and Dr. Marco Ferretti.

The deadline for manuscript submission will be July 2021. The online submission portal will be soon opened by Frontiers.
