Restoration and Management of Healthy Wetland Ecosystems

Description

Healthy ecosystem means not only ecological health itself but also the long-term maintenance of healthy human population and the sustainable promotion of social-economic development. Wetland ecosystem is one of the most important ecosystems in the whole world. There are different types of wetland ecosystems distributed in the world such as lakes, rivers, reservoirs, rice fields, freshwater, and brackish tidal mashes and mangroves. Healthy wetland ecosystem would provide not only suitable habitats for wildlife but also important ecosystem functions for local sustainable development.

With the large-scale urbanization and rapid economic development, each of wetland ecosystems is facing more and more ECO-environmental issues including soil fertility deduction, water pollution, biological invasions, and ecological function decrease. Therefore, improving and restoring wetlands’ various functions, creating healthy wetland ecosystem, are the pressing issues today. The local and central governments over the world have invested lots of money for ECO-reconstruction for economically sustainable development. In the past decade, the important progresses have been taking place, which has been witnessed by peer scientists and governmental managers.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Successes, failures, and current status of wetland restoration projects
  • Prevention and restoration of biodiversity loss in wetlands
  • Design of sustainable wetlands
  • Management for wetlands under changing climate, including biological invasions in wetland ecosystems
