Call for Papers, Special Issue on

Terrestrial Carbon Cycle Science and Management: New Frontiers of Research

As the Earths climate undergoes global climate changes, understanding terrestrial carbon cycling has become increasingly vital. This special issue seeks to serve as a forum for discussing the latest advances in terrestrial carbon cycling research, particularly within the context of global climate change. We welcome submissions covering a variety of topics, including, but not limited to:

1) Innovative Approaches in Carbon Cycle Research: Exploring the application of artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data analysis and model-data fusion techniques in carbon cycle research under global climate change.

2) Modeling and Predictive Insights: Developing models and providing predictive insights into carbon and nutrient cycles in terrestrial ecosystems under global climate change.

3) Microbial Influence on Carbon and Nutrient Cycles: Investigating the role of soil microorganisms in carbon and nutrient cycles and their responses to global climate change.

4) Soil Carbon Dynamics: Analyzing the responses of diverse soil carbon reservoirs to global climate change, including responses from deep soil layers.

5) Ecosystem Multifunctionality and Biodiversity: Assessing the impact of ecosystem multifunctionality, vegetation dynamics, and plant biodiversity on the carbon cycle in response to changing climate conditions.

6) Integrative Ecological Processes: Linking aboveground and belowground ecological processes to enhance our understanding of the soil carbon cycle under global climate change.
