Freshwater Ecosystems

Calls for Papers Collections

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.

In this PLOS ONE collection, our guest editors have compiled a selection of research conducted in or involving freshwater ecosystems, including rivers, lakes, streams and wetlands. 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, etc.).
