The journal Ecosystem Services has issued a call for papers for a new Special Issue on 'Mountain Landscapes: Protected Areas, Ecosystem Services, and Future Challenges' that aims to address important knowledge gaps in this area. The deadline is 30 November 2019. 

A significant proportion of the global population depends on goods and services provided by mountain regions, including fresh water, raw materials, and recreation. However, mountain regions all over the world are facing multiple challenges due to environmental and socio-economic changes, with related impacts on human livelihoods, economy, and ecosystems. This Special Issue of Ecosystem Services therefore aims to address important knowledge gaps, focusing on basic understanding of ecological functions and their drivers of change in mountain landscapes, as well as on societal trends in and outside mountain regions in order to be able to scope future challenges. A particular focus is placed on protected areas that are interested in the management and preservation of biodiversity and landscapes through scientific research, environmental education, and the promotion and development of sustainable tourism.
