Over the past several centuries, climate change and human population growth have become two main biological problems that influence biodiversity around the world. As part of the world’s ecosystems, wildlife provides balance and stability to nature’s processes. The biodiversity loss of wild animals and plants is increasing, which has become an indisputable fact.
This Special Issue aims to improve our knowledge on and deepen our understanding of the responses of wild animals and plants to environmental changes caused by human population growth and climate change (including local temperature change), documenting shifts in behavior, physiology, ecology and distribution. In this way, we expect to provide basic data and theoretical bases for the development of species conservation policies. In addition, we also expect to understand how wild animals and plants will adapt to the above ecological problems.
This Special Issue will include reviews and research articles focusing on the topic “Conservation and Evolution of Wildlife in the Context of Climate Change and Human Population Growth”. Please send an abstract before submission to ensure that your work fits within this Special Issue's scope.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process.
