As one of the basic objectives in water resource management, rivers and lakes are important components of surface water, being the ecological and environmental guarantees for regional sustainable development. Among ecosystems on the Earth, however, rivers and lakes are one of them that are most intensively influenced by human activities, and the intensity is becoming stronger. A healthy river and lake system is essential for maintaining the structure and function of ecosystems and serving human society. Practice to improve the health of rivers and lakes has been around the world for decades, but the specific techniques and measures of ecological restoration still face challenges.
This Special Issue seeks research papers of the latest research findings from worldwide scientists on various aspects of “River and Lake Health Improvement and Ecological Restoration”. Especially, we encourage submission of interdisciplinary work and multi-country collaborative research. We also encourage submission of environment policy or water policy-related manuscripts that focus on river and lake health improvement and ecological restoration associated issues.
