Ecological dangers and eco-risks are increasing rapidly and are becoming more and more public. Changing ecosystems also have the capacity to strongly affect human welfare. The complexity of genetic, physiological, behavioral, and ecological information required to address these issues is vast, requiring an interdisciplinary approach.
The main goal of the Special Issue is to share knowledge, experiences and research results of academics, researchers about all aspects of Environment Studies in general; to integrate the activities of groups working in different branches of Applied Ecology, which meets the needs and requirements of the world. This complex approach, and agreed recommendations, will help the sustainable development of the Earth.
Ecological investigation often has an individual and partial character and does not take into account the logical chain: contamination source --> air/water/soil --> food --> humans. While those ecologists contributing to the determination of environmental contamination are more or less active in their own specific field, we lack a complex and integrated approach involving experts of different sciences.
Against the background of global climate change, the natural environment is undergoing a significant transformation which requires an in-depth analysis of the problem and the sharing of international experience. Climate change and related problems - desertification, soil degradation, gas emission, coastline destruction, ecological disasters, eco-migration, etc. – affect the whole world. Therefore an investigation into Environmental problems is a special priority nowadays.
Knowledge created by this complex and integrated process will provide an invaluable contribution to the sustainable development of cross-cultural understanding and international awareness.
The Special Issue invites papers on the various areas of Applied Ecology:
Agroecology Antropogenic Impact Assessment Atmosphere Ecology Biodiversity & Conservation Bioecology Civilizations Ecology Climate Change Coastal Protection Critical Areas Desertification Depletion of Natural Resources Ecological Anthropology Ecological Education Ecological Expertise Ecological Migrations Ecological Risk Assessment Ecological Tourism Ecotoxicology Energy and Enviromnen Environmental Degradation Environmental Health Environmental Law Environmental Management Ethnoecology Extinction of Rare Species Forestry Ecology Geoecology Glaciers dynamics Hydroecology Landscape Dynamics Landscape-ecological Planning Natural Disaster Nature Management Pollution Control Rational Using of Natural Resources Soil Ecology Sustainable Development Vulnerable Areas Problem Solution Waste Management World Ocean Ecology
