Aquatic Habitat Ecology & Conservation: Continental and Marine Ecosystems Connectivity

Frontiers in Marine Science

This Research Topic provides an analytical overview of problems faced by flora and fauna and aquatic habitat conservation of different climatic regions of the world. Habitat loss seems to be the greatest concern for all aquatic ecosystems, with a long list of causes related to unsustainable development models. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive and multidisciplinary overview of variables that influence flora and fauna distribution and shape their ecological interactions within aquatic ecosystems. This Research Topic aims to provide a discussion forum to better understand the factors that lead to the loss of aquatic habitats and its effect on aquatic communities and ecosystem functioning, as well as the efforts being made to promote restoration of these ecosystems. All topics related to aquatic habitat ecology and conservation are therefore welcomed.
