Guest Editors: Dr. Anne Timm; Dr. Susan Adams; and Dr. Jason Dunham
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2021
Journal: Water (ISSN 2073-4441)

Dear Colleagues,

Freshwater stream and wetland species are inherently connected to forested ecosystems because of the importance of riparian zones and the role of forests in maintaining water quantity, water quality, and habitat. Maintaining stream and wetland habitat connectivity and ecosystem functions at all spatial scales are essential for aquatic biodiversity conservation. Threats to global aquatic biodiversity may include forest management practices, urbanization-related stressors, climate-change-related alterations of hydrologic and thermal regimes, and biological invasions. This Special Issue of Water aims to showcase habitat conservation for fish, amphibians, invertebrates, and other aquatic and semi-aquatic species that depend on freshwater–forest connections. Manuscript themes may span aquatic ecosystem effects of forestry practices, riparian buffer efficacy and corridor designs, land-cover- and climate-change-related stressors, genetic tools for inventory and assessment, and ecohydrology applications for habitat planning. Submissions are encouraged on stream and wetland species that are at risk due to reduced freshwater–forest habitat connectivity and predictive tools that can be applied at multiple spatial scales to help to reduce loss of aquatic habitat and ecosystem function.
