Unfortunately this journal has not been claimed yet. For this reason, some information may be unavailable.

Features distinguished editors-in-chief and an international editorial board Presents significant research, editorials, mini-reviews and special features This journal welcomes contributions that support and advance the UN's sustainable development goals, in particular SDG 14 Life Below Water and SDG 15 Life on Land. Reviews new tools and methods of broad interest to ecosystem scientists Publishes papers that integrate biotic, abiotic and social data across temporal and spatial scales, in both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems 100% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again The study and management of ecosystems represents the most dynamic field of contemporary ecology. Ecosystem research bridges fundamental ecology, environmental ecology and environmental problem-solving. The scope of ecosystem science extends from bounded systems such as watersheds to spatially complex landscapes, to the Earth itself, and crosses temporal scales from seconds to millennia. Ecosystem science has strong links to other disciplines including landscape ecology, global ecology, biogeochemistry, aquatic ecology, soil science, hydrology, ecological economics and conservation biology. Studies of ecosystems employ diverse approaches, including theory and modeling, long-term investigations, comparative research and large experiments. The journal Ecosystems features a distinguished team of editors-in-chief and an outstanding international editorial board, and is recognized worldwide as a home for significant research, editorials, mini-reviews and special features. It has an SJR impact factor of 1,427.
