Special Issue "Aquatic Ecosystem Health"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Environmental Science and Engineering".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2018).
Interests: aquatic ecology; ecosystem health; human impacts; water resources management; water security; water sanitation and hygiene (WaSH); climate change adaptation
As there is growing recognition of the need to maintain healthy environments to sustain healthy communities, this Special Issue is dedicated to studies examining aspects of aquatic ecosystem health. Related topics include, but are not limited to, ecosystem health assessment, disturbance ecology, aquatic food web ecology, invasive species monitoring and impacts, novel monitoring tools, assessments of aquatic ecosystem responses to climate and extreme weather events and links between ecosystem and human health. All of the research outcomes are intended to contribute to the development of best management practices in aquatic ecosystem health assessment and reporting. This Special Issue is open to any subject area relating to aquatic ecosystem health. Research papers, analytical reviews, case studies, conceptual frameworks, and policy-relevant articles are welcome.Dr. Wade L. Hadwen
