Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The degradation of lands and ecosystems worldwide is of major environmental risk. Thus, the restoration of degraded landscapes, agroecosystems and natural forests helps the restitution of ecosystem services and values, improving the sustainable management of ecosystems and conservation of living species, which is of high priority. Therefore, to obtain and compile information on soil microorganisms, plant ecology and ecological restoration are urgently needed.

This Special Issue is dedicated to research including advances in plant and soil science for a sustainable life and better ecosystem functioning.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: microbes as indicators of ecological restoration and soil health; the environmental, cultural, economic, and social sustainability of human environments; how ecosystems can be regenerated, conserved, and integrated into the current human lifestyle; and land degradation neutrality and carbon sequestration 

I look forward to receiving your contributions.

Dr. Marcela Pagano
Guest Editor
