Symposium: Can forests take the heat: Biotic and abiotic threats from urbanization and climate change
call closes when slots are filled
Urban forests improve the quality of life for urban residents and wildlife by providing shade, shelter, and filtering air and water. Urbanization processes that accommodate growing human populations can alter the climate and biotic interactions. These changes often increase tree stress and pest abundance which can compromise forest health and reduce ecosystem services. Our speakers will present work that identifies how urban climate and edaphic conditions alter tree susceptibility to pests and how that may vary among tree and pest systems. Speakers will also address how cities may be prone to
Journals participating in Peerage of Science
Available before, during and after the peer review process. All Select destinations have concurrent access to all ongoing peer review processes, and the right to make direct publishing offers to you. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
Available only after the peer review process is complete. Submission to a Connect destination exports the process exclusively and cancels any existing offers from The Select destinations (the traditional "no simultaneous consideration" policy). However, you can cancel export later by exporting to another Connect destination, or by returning the process to full availability. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
You can create a link to the peer review process and give it to editors of any journal of your choice in a traditional submission. Using the link is a free service for both you and the receiving journal.
