Special Issue "Distribution of Bryophytes in a Changing World"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 3227
We are pleased to announce a forthcoming Special Issue on the Distribution of Bryophytes in a Changing World as an amazing and dynamic field of science.
Bryophytes are the second largest group of terrestrial plants after angiosperms, and not only for that reason, they deserve our attention. In a changing world, it is important to understand the mechanisms of change that occur, and this topic is now even more important to understand due to ongoing climate change. The ranges of individual species are changing, some are expanding, and others are disappearing, so it is important to investigate the causes and consequences of such changes. It is a dynamic field of science and despite the amazing amount of rapidly accumulating information, there are still open questions and challenges in this fascinating field. Therefore, this Special Issue is focused on those changes from a broader perspective because it is not only about changes in the occurrence of bryophytes, but also their bioindication ability, changes in connection with climate change, understanding the causes and effects of such changes, predicting the future trends and others topics related to the changing world and bryophytes.
The team at Diversity and ourselves kindly invite you to submit a manuscript focused on any of the above topics. Although specific case studies with broad implications are welcome, we encourage authors to submit large-scale and/or multi-specific studies, synthesis works, and reviews that could better enlarge our knowledge of the distribution of Bryophytes in a Changing World. If you are interested in this opportunity or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
