Soil C and N Response to Climate, Land-Use and Management Changes

Dear Colleagues:

It is my pleasure to inform you that the Editorial Board of Soil Science and Plant Nutrition has approved our proposal to publish a Special Section of the journal on oil C and N response to climate, land-use and management changes on the Vol 68 (1), in January 2022. You are kindly invited to submit research articles and reviews to the Special Section.

Soil Science and Plant Nutrition is the official English language journal of the Japanese Society of Soil Science and Plant Nutrition (JSSSPN), and publishes original research findings and reviews on soil science, plant nutrition and related subjects. Please visit the journal web site for more information: http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/tssp20/current

Looking forward to receiving your responses.

Yours sincerely,

Guest Editor-in-Chief; INUBUSHI Kazuyuki

Guest Editor; CHENG Weiguo


Special issue summary

The increase of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions such as CO2, CH4 and N2O has caused global warming and serious issues in agricultural production in the world. The major increase of CO2 emission was caused by fossil fuel consumption in the past 260 years but artificial land use change by increase in the world population is also responsible for GHG emissions. The field of agriculture is recognized as high potentials to mitigate GHG emissions by appropriate land management.

Land use and its management methods vary from countries and different climate zones. However, soil C and N dynamics by land use change and its impacts are not well studied to compile climate change mitigation and adaptation strategy. Therefore, this special section aims to provide an international platform to present current study on Soil C and N Dynamics by Climate, Land Use and Management Changes in the world.

This special issue is part of a cross-disciplinary collection in support of the European Commission’s Horizon Missions, with contributions from across the Life, Earth and Environmental Sciences. These missions collectively represent important research and policy priorities facing our global society. The collection will be published to be timed with Earth Day 2022 (22 April 2022) as part of a collaborative effort to support real-world research that addresses the SDGs and global policy priorities.
