Change in the Amazon

Submission status
Submission deadline

Amazonia is currently undergoing rapid and concerning changes that threaten its ecological balance and its crucial role in mitigating global climate change. Deforestation and wildfires have resulted in the destruction of habitats and increased the vulnerability of ecosystems to climate change and extreme weather events. Illegal and unmonitored practices of mining, logging, and wildlife trafficking have further compounded these issues, causing irreparable damage, and exacerbating social and environmental conflicts.

In this Collection, we present a selection of papers that delve into both natural and human-induced disturbances in Amazonia and aim to address the environmental challenges facing this vital ecosystem through a multidisciplinary approach.
