Special Issue Information
Coastal environments are well known for their ecological importance in providing habitat and food to wildlife, and coastal wetlands are known to possess multiple functions such as shoreline erosion prevention, resilience against storms and floods, and recreation. As rapid development and urbanization continues, protecting, conserving, and rehabilitating coastal environments are more urgent and crucial than ever. In this regard, papers providing recent updates of coastal environment research, and current challenges in and solutions to coastal environment conservation and development are called for submission. Suggested themes of submitted manuscripts include the following:
- Ecological challenges and conservation;
- Coastal environment degradation and restoration;
- Impacts and sustainability of coastal development;
- Bioresources and applications of coastal environments.
