SpringerOpen is Springer’s new suite of open access journals which will cover all disciplines. SpringerOpen journals are fully and immediately open access and will publish articles under the Creative Commons Attribution license. This makes it easy for authors to fully comply with open access mandates and retain copyright. SpringerOpen journals combine open access and our expertise in delivering high-quality and rapid publications, from online submission systems and in-depth peer review to an efficient, author-friendly production process.
Aims & scope
Ecological Processes is an Open Access peer-reviewed international journal devoted to the publication of high quality research, with articles on all aspects of biological, chemical, physical, and hydrological processes of ecosystem and landscape dynamics across spatial and temporal scales, while highlighting topics of current interest in certain issues. Emphasis is placed on techniques, approaches, and concepts, including but not limited to: descriptive, comparative, experimental, mathematical, statistical, and interdisciplinary approaches. Ecological Processes aims to provide better understanding of the ecosystem processes and landscape processes, therefore, better management of ecosystems and environments.
Forthcoming article series
This special issue will demonstrate case studies that are located both in natural and build landscapes. Lessons learnt from presented case studies should be valuable also for policy makers, while working on different land - use planning documents.
The scientific assessments necessary to inform society of the magnitude and extent of changes in climate, land use, and other drivers of global change and the resultant impacts on essential ecosystem services are not easy and largely still lacking. This thematic series will feature examples of projects that are pushing the integration envelope forward to help address these needs.
Based on a symposium of the same topic (as part of the Society of Ecological Restoration-Australasia's inaugural meeting, 2012), this thematic series seeks to promote scientific dialogue regarding the challenges and consequences of re-instating 'natural' vs. 'novel' ecosystems across a wide range of ecological contexts, disturbance regimes and investigative perspectives.
This Special Issue aims at bridging the knowledge gap between urbanization, changing landscape and biodiversity, the processes involved and urban observation and monitoring methods. The use of these theoretical, conceptual to applied methods used in urban research and management will be the highlight of this Special Issue.
