Special Issue Information
We are pleased to announce a forthcoming Special Issue in Diversity entitled “Ecology, Conservation, and Restoration of Threatened Animals”.
We are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction, also known as the Holocene extinction, due to intense and rapid environmental change made by humans in the epoch of the Holocene. The emerging mass extinction, or at least the drastic decline in populations, has been changing the global ecosystem and harming human well-being. Currently, countries are forging an agreement to protect and conserve 30% of the planet by 2030 in the 2022 UN Biodiversity Conference with an aim to lessen biodiversity loss. Ecological characteristics vary in different threatened species, and so do the conservation and restoration approaches that should be used for each of them. We urgently need to understand the populations and habitats of threatened animals, reveal the factors causing the endangering progress, and derive conservation policies and management measures to conserve these species. Knowledge of those topics is the bridge that will lead us from the area-based conservation approach of “30 by 30” to achieving the goal of actually restoring or maintaining global biodiversity.
Diversity has organized this Special Issue to combine and synthesize the latest advancements in research regarding the ecology and conservation of threatened animals. We, alongside Diversity’s team, invite you to submit reviews or original research manuscripts focused on the topics mentioned above. This Special Issue focuses on the current status and challenges, novel methods, solutions, and future perspectives in the field of the ecology and conservation of threatened animals.
