Special Issue "Forest Soil and Water Biogeochemistry"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 July 2022) | Viewed by 13726
Interests: nutrient cycling in forest and alpine soils; impact on soil chemistry on freshwater quality
The most interesting insight into forests is the whole ecosystem approach. The composition of atmospheric depositions, soil parameters and the status of forest vegetation are inevitably interconnected, and every forest belongs to some catchment, thus affecting the quality of freshwater. Biogeochemical fluxes through forest ecosystems could be altered by disturbances, offering the opportunity to study biogeochemical cycles during rapidly changing conditions. Moreover, natural or anthropogenic forest disturbances may temporarily affect forest functions (e.g., carbon sequestration) and increase the risk of soil/land degradation.
The aim of this Special Issue is to cover the broader area of biogeochemistry of forested areas, including atmospheric depositions, forest soil chemistry and biochemistry, as well as the chemistry and biochemistry of freshwater (streams, lakes) in forested catchment. Multidisciplinary studies focusing on at least two of the abovementioned aspects are highly welcome. We also encourage authors to submit review papers.

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.
