Aims and scope
Forest Ecosystems is an open access, peer-reviewed journal publishing scientific communications from any discipline that can provide interesting contributions about the structure and dynamics of "natural" and "domesticated" forest ecosystems, and their services to people. The journal welcomes innovative science as well as application oriented work that will enhance understanding of woody plant communities. Very specific studies are welcome if they are part of a thematic series that provides some holistic perspective that is of general interest.
Open thematic series
The Thematic Series 'National Forest Inventories – informing past, present and future decisions' is open for submission.
This series comprises articles based on abstracts submitted to the conference "A century of national forest inventories – informing past, present and future decisions", 19-23 May 2019 in Sundvollen, Norway. Independent submissions are, however, also accepted.

Submission deadline: 30 April 2020
Articles in the series will be available on this collection page upon online.
The publication costs for Forest Ecosystems are covered by Beijing Forestry University, so authors do not need to pay an article-processing charge for each article accepted for publication.
