In celebration of the UN’s International Year of Forests, and the British Ecological Society’s Symposium on Forests and Global Change, the Journal of Applied Ecology and Methods in Ecology and Evolution have worked together to bring you two complementary virtual issues in these areas: one dealing with environmental management, and the other the most relevent new methodological developments in forest and global change research.
Sample papers from the Methods virtual issue include:
- A framework for assessing threats and benefits to species responding to climate change
by Chris D. Thomas, Jane K. Hill, Barbara J. Anderson, Sallie Bailey, Colin M. Beale, Richard B. Bradbury, Caroline R. Bulman, Humphrey Q. P. Crick, Felix Eigenbrod, Hannah M. Griffiths, William E. Kunin, Tom H. Oliver, Clive A. Walmsley, Kevin Watts, Nicholas T. Worsfold and Tim Yardley
- Heating up the forest: open-top chamber warming manipulation of arthropod communities at Harvard and Duke forests
by Shannon Pelini, Francis Bowles, Aaron Ellison, Nicholas Gotelli, Nathan Sanders and Robert Dunn
- Estimating the wood density of species for carbon stock assessments
by Olivier Flores and David A. Coomes
We hope that you will find these virtual issues both useful and engaging, and that they will help to contribute to future research in this highly relevant field!
