Call for papers: Coastal Wetlands: Services, Uses and Conservation

Coastal wetlands play an important role in providing varieties of ecological functions such as storm and flood control, climate regulation and bio-conservation. However, due to lack of awareness of coastal wetlands services, human disturbanceincluding artificial deforestation, land reclamation, farming, harbour construction and other human activities have led to the destruction or disappearance of coastal wetland ecosystems.

Therefore, the 10th INTECOL International Wetlands Conference will announce a forthcoming special issue on ‘Coastal Wetlands: Services, Uses and Conservation’, which will be published in Hydrobiologia. We invite submissions of original and unpublished papers, in the field of wide range of coastal wetland studies.
