About this Research Topic
The goal of this Research Topic is to gain novel insights into the responses of wetland (marsh, peatland, mangrove, estuary, etc.) to global change (temperature, precipitation, nitrogen deposition, drought, ecological restoration, pollution, and other anthropogenic factors, etc.) and its underlying mechanisms.
We welcome different types of manuscripts including original research papers, reviews, and methods, including but not limited to:
• Patterns and drivers of wetland vegetation (including community structure, functional traits, multifunctionality, biodiversity, phenology, etc.) under the changing environment based on in situ observation and remote sensing.
• Responses and feedback of wetland ecosystem processing and functions to global change (temperature, precipitation, nitrogen deposition, drought, ecological restoration, anthropogenic factors, etc.) using field experiments and large-scale transects.
• Elucidating underlying mechanism (including but not limited to microbial mechanism) of carbon storage, carbon flux and carbon budget of wetland ecosystem in response to global change by field investigation, eddy covariance, models, etc.
Keywords: wetland vegetation, ecosystem processing, carbon flux, marsh, peatland, mangrove, estuary
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
