Biological invasions and climate change, the most important parts of global changes, are a growing threat to global ecosystems. They can modify community species composition, decrease biodiversity, depress the function and ecological processes of ecosystems (such as greenhouse gas emission, carbon stock and emission, element cycling, etc.), and affect socioeconomic development as well as human well-being. Understanding the environment impacts of biological invasion and climate change can serve as a basis for forward-thinking management plans. The overarching challenge is thus to understand the impacts of biological invasion and climate change on biodiversity, the function and ecological processes of ecosystems, as well as the basic ecological interactions in biotic communities such as invasive–native species interactions, plant–soil feedback, and plant–animal interactions under climate changes. The authors of this Special Issue will share their insights to help bridge these gaps, and thereby speed the integration of mechanisms to help making management policy and controlling biological invasion and climate change. Short communications, original papers, and review articles are welcome for submission to this Special Issue.

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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2500 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.
