Microbes are important components of the ecosystem and play a significant role in the process of ecological landscape restoration. Microbial structure and function affect the process of landscape restoration, and changes in environmental conditions react to the microbial community. In recent years, microbes have been applied to various landscape restoration processes, such as mine restoration and water pollutant removal. Moreover, the development of related biotechnologies, such as 16S rDNA and metagenome, provides us with an opportunity to further explore the function and mechanism of microbes.
Landscape restoration is an important way to support human wellbeing, and increasing attention has been paid to microbial application in this process. However, the functions and mechanisms of most microorganisms are still unknown due to the complexity of microbial species. To improve our understanding of the underlying mechanisms of microbes in application for landscape restoration, we have launched this Special Issue to collect the latest studies adopting effective strategies for landscape restoration. The Special Issue has a wide scope, including both mechanism research and engineering applications, with a research scale from molecule to landscape. All studies relevant to microbes, including taxonomy, function, phylogenetic diversity, structural diversity and landscape function, are welcome.

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. Forests 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 2600 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.
