Special issue on plant diversity changes in QTP since the Anthropocene
Published 04 November, 2022
The Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (QTP), also known as the roof of the world, is rich in biological resources, but human involvement is affecting its plant diversity.
This special issue will explore the changes in plant diversity in the QTP and its surrounding areas since the Anthropocene. Our goal is to reveal the impact of human activities and global climate change on plant diversity and "changes" since humans boarded the plateau, especially since the Anthropocene. We welcome original research papers, perspectives, case studies and review articles.
These include, but are not limited to:
- Changes in plant diversity (distribution patterns, genetic structures, tree lines, ecosystems, etc.)
- Species invasion
- Use of plant resources
- Domestication of species and the originsof cultivated plants
- Threatened status of species
- Endangered mechanisms
- Submissions close: 28 February 2023
- Expected publication: July 2023
Please read the Guide for Authors before submitting. All articles should be submitted online; please select the special issue “Plant diversity changes QTP”. If the manuscript is accepted, the article will be published open access with no fee payable by the author.
