CALL FOR PAPERS
Freshwater Ecosystems Call for Papers
Submit to PLOS ONE to get your freshwater ecosystem research in front of a global, interdisciplinary audience. Deadline February 28, 2021.
Freshwater Ecosystems occupy a small percent of the Earth’s surface but they are rich sources of biodiversity and provide important services to human societies, such as water, food, regulation of hydrological extremes, pollutant attenuation, and carbon sequestration. As freshwater systems are under pressure from human activity and climate change, a more complete understanding of these systems is needed to respond to the environmental changes associated with these processes.
PLOS ONE is announcing a call for papers for a new Collection, Freshwater Ecosystems, to shed light on this important topic. This collection aims to transcend traditional boundaries between ecosystem types e.g. terrestrial, aquatic, marine and divisions among processes e.g. carbon, nutrients, hydrology, human activity, population ecology. Additionally, new approaches to scaling surface and subsurface processes and recovery timeframes of biogeochemical and ecological functioning are of great interest. We would particularly encourage submissions from regions and voices that are underrepresented in the freshwater ecosystem literature.”
Over 990 PLOS ONE papers have been published related to freshwater ecosystems.
