Special Issue Information
Biological invasions are one of the main direct drivers of biodiversity loss worldwide. They pose a rapidly growing threat to biodiversity, ecosystem services, sustainable development, and human wellbeing. The challenge of halting biodiversity loss and facing this problem is more and more critical in the context of climate change and current geopolitical problems. The newest scientific and practical findings regarding all kinds of biological invasions will be discussed in the next NEOBIOTA conference, “2nd International Conference on Biological Invasions: Biological Invasions in a Changing World”, being held in Tartu, Estonia, 12–16 September 2022.
The authors of selected papers presented at the conference are invited to submit extended versions to this Special Issue of the journal Diversity after the conference. Submitted papers should be extended to the size of regular research or review articles, with at least a 50% extension of new results. All submitted papers will undergo the journal’s standard peer review procedure. Accepted papers will be published in open-access format in Diversity and collected together in the Special Issue website. There are no page limitations for this journal.
