Special Issue "Impacts of Climatic Changes on Biodiversity"


Guest Editor

Prof. Dr. Jose Galizia Tundisi  

President of International Institute of Ecology, a non profit organization at São Carlos, São Paulo State, Brazil.


Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The effects and consequences of climatic changes are well known : Climatic changes are producing significant increases on the average temperature of the Planet Earth,affecting the water cycle and causing many problems such as large scale  storms and droughts. All these changes produce severe economic problems worldwide, and affects Human Health. One of the important and relevant consequences of the climatic changes are the effects on terrestrial and aquatic biodiversity. Extinction of endangered species, effects on the geographical distribution of biota, changes in the organization of food webs are related consequences. Climatic changes are also enhancing the growth of cyanobacteria in inland waters ( rivers, lakes, reservoirs )  and coastal ecosystems therefore increasing the toxicity of these ecosystems and affecting the diversity of the aquatic biota. Terrestrial vegetation and fauna are  also suffering the effects of several months of drought. Therefore it is necessary a detailed and up to date account of  the impacts of climatic changes on biodiversity and the possible actions , technologies and research that can contribute to minimize the effects. The Planet Earth has suffered along for millions of years 5 extinctions of biodiversity caused by natural events. The present six extinctions are due to human action. The special number will receive contributions from research workers specialized in biodiversity from all over the world  and we expect excellent and competent contribution to this significant issue. A general and synthesis of the climatic changes and its overall consequences will open this Special Issue.

How to promote the Growth of Pinus sylvestris var. mongolica?


The seedlings of Pinus sylvestris var. mongolica, the annual seedlings exhibit the highest incidence rate, with a mortality rate of up to 50% upon disease incidence . Over-reliance on chemical pesticides has caused serious problems such as soil compaction, degradation of soil fertility, increased drug resistance of the pathogens and pests, destruction of soil’s micro-ecological environment, increased crop phytotoxicity, and weak seedling growth.

Between-group differences and annual changes in seedling biomass.
