Forest (grassland) vegetation and its understory soil are always shifting as a result of global climate change, altering the function of forest ecosystem services.
The following issues need to be addressed urgently by forest and grass researchers and management departments:
- How do different heterogeneous spatial forest (grassland) vegetations and soils respond to global change?
- What are their strengths and driving mechanisms?
- How can we manage forest vegetation and soil sources efficiently?
- How can we improve the function of ecosystem services?
We welcome papers and reviews related but not limited to changes in forest and grass vegetation and soils in different areas, forest and grass vegetation and soil management, plant–soil–microorganism interactions, the resource utilization of forestry waste, etc. Moreover, studies investigating changes in forest and grass resources as a result of climate change and policies, together with characteristics of soil change and its driving mechanisms, will also be considered.
