Wetlands are important to protect because of various ecosystem services including wildlife habitat, water purification, flood storage and storm protection.
This special feature presents responses of various vegetation types to climate and land-use change including mangroves, freshwater forests and more. It aims to bring forth potential solutions to imminent threats to wetlands, contributing to the fostering of health and sustainability. It also further explains the connection of natural ecosystems and humans and how these are affected by climate change and land-use change.
