Ecosystems provide valuable functions and benefit to human beings and society. However, the human-environment interaction will directly or indirectly influence the ecosystems. The changing environment such as deforestation, hillside development or urbanization will affect the entire ecosystem. Besides, the different conservation strategies or environmental policies will result in threats to land use/land cover, human or environment, biodiversity, ecosystem, and ecosystem service supply. In order to sustain the provision of vital ecosystem services, information concerning the environment, ecosystem, environmental/conservation planning, or ecosystem service is important and necessary.
This Special Issue is comprised of selected papers from the Global Land Project (GLP) Asia Conference, which will be held in Taipei, Taiwan on 24–26 September 2014. The conference is focused on sustainable land use and ecosystem management, investigation of the vulnerability and resilience on critical lands, and development of modeling and analysis tools for land-use projects. Such discussions illustrate the connections with the environment, ecosystem, and ecosystem services. Papers selected for this Special Issue are subjected to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments and applications in the area of environment.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Environments is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
