This Special Issue aims to collect high-quality review papers from many aspects of ecology. Ecology includes processes that take place at different levels of biological organization (population, community, and ecosystem) with a specific focus on biodiversity. Many research questions remain unresolved or should be the focus of future research. For example, the effects of the major anthropogenic drivers of global change (e.g., climate change, biological invasions, land use change, and nitrogen deposition) on species and ecosystems, the effects of biodiversity mechanisms on ecosystem functioning, the effectiveness and connectivity of protected areas under current or future climate, the effectiveness of different restoration methods for restoring degraded ecosystems, or the implementation of ecological strategies that use nature-based solutions to make our environment more sustainable are just some of the of top-priority issues. We encourage researchers to contribute review papers that highlight the latest developments in their research area, or to invite relevant experts and colleagues to do so. We sincerely welcome your submissions to this Special Issue in Biology on any of the subject areas listed below.
- Functional ecology;
- Trait-based ecology;
- Population ecology;
- Community ecology;
- Ecosystem ecology;
- Landscape ecology;
- Evolutionary ecology;
- Applied ecology;
