Invitation to contribute to our project on Impact of Anthropogenic Disturbances on Agroforestry Ecosystems

Dear colleagues,

I am co-editing a Research Topic titled “Impact of Anthropogenic Disturbances on Agroforestry Ecosystems”, within the journal Frontiers in Water.

The main goal is to bring together research papers focusing on the impact of human disturbances (such as climate warming, land use change, soil pollution) on the ecosystem services related to the water cycle. Given your expertise, I would value your contribution to this collection.
