A set of climatic events that have occurred across the paleolitic ages all the way to today have caused profound changes in the biosphere, such as the periods of glaciation and global warming. In response to these changes, natural systems change: Some species increase their area of distribution, while others’ decreases, or they end up disappearing. These strong changes are responsible for environmental quality; they influence and are influenced by human communities. In this context, knowledge of the potential natural vegetation is key, to understand global changes and identify possible treats. The value of bioindicator plants is clear, used as a predictive tool to interpret the landscape and therefore analyze the evolution of vegetation cover, as well as the types of land use more suitable to each portion of territory. This Special Issue looks for new material not yet published, which relates the natural plant communities and their dynamic evolution (in a short or a long term) to bioclimatic changes and anthropic actions in the landscape, through analyses of the floristic composition, the edaphoclimatic conditions, and integration management methods. We particularly welcome paperwork obtained from empirical research, modeling, remote sensing, landscape planning, decision support tools, fundamental plant or vegetation science, and specific case-studies which span a range of spatial and temporal scales. These studies should contribute to an improvement in the quality of the environment, based on the importance of vegetation and throughout its rational management, concerning the long-term survival of the planet. We invite each author to contribute, sending one or more articles that embrace this general purpose and respond to one or more of the indicated keywords.

Dynamic of Vegetation and Climate Change


Aims and Scope

A set of climatic events that have occurred across the paleolitic ages all the way to today have caused profound changes in the biosphere, such as the periods of glaciation and global warming. In response to these changes, natural systems change: Some species increase their area of distribution, while others’ decreases, or they end up disappearing. These strong changes are responsible for environmental quality; they influence and are influenced by human communities. In this context, knowledge of the potential natural vegetation is key, to understand global changes and identify possible treats. The value of bioindicator plants is clear, used as a predictive tool to interpret the landscape and therefore analyze the evolution of vegetation cover, as well as the types of land use more suitable to each portion of territory. This Special Issue looks for new material not yet published, which relates the natural plant communities and their dynamic evolution (in a short or a long term) to bioclimatic changes and anthropic actions in the landscape, through analyses of the floristic composition, the edaphoclimatic conditions, and integration management methods.
