Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research (AEER) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality peer-reviewed papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of environmental science and engineering. Work at any scale, from molecular biology through to ecology, is welcomed.

Main research areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Atmospheric pollutants
  • Air pollution control engineering
  • Climate change
  • Ecological and human risk assessment
  • Environmental management and policy
  • Environmental impact and risk assessment
  • Environmental microbiology
  • Ecosystem services, biodiversity and natural capital
  • Environmental economics
  • Control and monitoring of pollutants
  • Remediation of polluted soils and water
  • Fate and transport of contaminants
  • Water and wastewater treatment engineering
  • Solid waste treatment

Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research publishes a range of papers (original research, review, communication, opinion, study protocol, comment, conference report, technical note, book review, etc.). We encourage authors to be succinct; however, authors should present their results in as much detail as necessary. Reviewers are expected to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

About This Topic

Wetlands are commonly integrated within the natural and/or build environment and are part of a more or less complex system. These wetland systems can either be natural or constructed. Natural wetlands have often a multitude of ecosystem services such as water treatment, biodiversity enhancement and recreational functions. In comparison, constructed wetlands are commonly used for water pollution control purposes.

Both natural and constructed wetland system types may have also ecosystem disservices such as air and water pollution, if not managed appropriately. For example, a mature wetland system may become a source of pollutants to both the receiving air and watercourse, if the water level is too low.

As wetland substrate and accumulated organic matter aerobically degrades, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and phosphorus may be released. Therefore, it is necessary for wetland managers and decision-makers in general to understand more about how to manage, operate and monitor wetlands better to control their biochemical processes.

This special issue aims to address the above and related challenges linked to wetland management to control air and/or water pollution. Both review and original papers are welcome to either summarize current knowledge and understanding or contribute new and significant findings to the scientific community for evaluation, respectively.
