Interactions between Ozone Pollution and Forest Ecosystems

About this Research Topic

Ozone pollution continues to be a serious issue for forest ecosystems. Progress has been achieved by controlling the emission of precursors in some areas of the world, but much remains to be done. The section welcomes contributions on the following subjects:

1. Monitoring, modelling and assessing the risk of ozone damage to forest ecosystems: New monitoring approaches and epidemiological studies, Risk assessment by evaluating different metrics for plant protection, with a focus on stomatal ozone flux.

2. How forest ecosystems respond to ozone exposure: a main aim is to evaluate strategies for maximizing productivity and other environmental services of forest ecosystems under ozone stress. Mechanistic studies under controlled conditions are also welcome.

3. How forest ecosystems affect ozone concentration in the atmosphere: Exchanges of biogenic volatile organic compounds and links with ozone chemistry in the atmosphere by addressing mechanisms, seasonality, responses to ozone singly and in combination with other environmental factors.


Keywords: Ozone Pollution, Forest, Atmosphere, Stomatal Ozone Flux, Ozone Stress, Biogenic Volatile Compounds


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.
