Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I extend a sincere invitation for your contribution to our Special Issue, titled "Environmental Risk Assessment of Aquatic Environments". The sustainability and ecological balance of aquatic environments are facing increasing threats. This Special Issue aims to explore and evaluate the potential risks posed by multidrug-resistant organisms, emerging contaminants, environmental hormones, heavy metals, antibiotics, biotoxins, etc., to aquatic ecosystems.

In recent years, factors such as multidrug-resistant organisms, emerging contaminants, and environmental hormones have become pivotal issues in aquatic environments, posing potential hazards to aquatic organisms. Substances like heavy metals, antibiotics, and biotoxins also impact aquatic ecosystems to varying degrees. Therefore, through this Special Issue, we aim to delve into these potential hazards, conducting risk assessments to ensure the health and sustainable development of aquatic environments.

The Special Issue covers various aspects, including microbial ecology, detection, and management of emerging contaminants, impact of environmental hormones, monitoring of heavy metal pollution, risks associated with antibiotic resistance, ecological effects of biotoxins, etc. We invite you to submit your latest research in these areas, collectively advancing our understanding of the risks in aquatic environments.

The scope of this Special Issue is not limited to natural water bodies but also extends to aquaculture systems, exploring the ecology of microorganisms, algae, and their applications in aquaculture. Additionally, the Special Issue will emphasize the feasibility of bioremediation technologies in aquatic environments, involving the application of microorganisms, microalgae, and other biological agents.

We look forward to receiving your valuable submissions, contributing to the ongoing development of the field of environmental risk assessment in aquatic environments. Kindly submit your research findings before the deadline. Thank you for your support of this Special Issue.

Prof. Dr. Chien-Sen Liao
Guest Editor

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. Environments 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 1800 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.
