Environmental monitoring is always a priority in global research due to the close relationship between environmental pollution and human health, with biosensors having been widely employed as cost-effective, fast and real-time analytical techniques in this field. One issue requiring monitoring is water pollution, which has been a significant threat to humans and animals. This issue is getting serious due to higher water consumption, intensified human activity, climate change and so on. Monitoring water quality is critical to understand water pollution and ensure the safety of water. Soils are the fundament of terrestrial ecosystems, providing essential ecosystem services. Soil damage has been increasing and worsening due to anthropogenic activities and increased soil use. The loss of soil carbon, soil pollution, and erosion are global problems. Air quality also affects humans. To ensure good air quality, it is necessary to obtain the relevant information and make it available. The main topic of this Special Issue is to provide an updated overview of the recent developments in and applications of biosensors for the monitoring of air, water and soil pollutants in real conditions.
This Special Issue will combine a set of novel and high-quality publications (original research articles, short communications, and review articles) on biosensors for water, air and soil monitoring.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. 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. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Biosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
