This Scientific Reports Collection in the journal Nature provides a platform for interdisciplinary studies of mountain surface processes and their responses to climate change and human activities.

Submissions are welcome on a rolling basis.

Mountains cover about a quarter of the world’s land surface and provide water and mineral resources, timber and non-timber forest products, and many other food, fiber and fuel products. This Collection will provide a platform for interdisciplinary studies of mountain surface processes and their responses to climate change and human activities. Submissions are welcome in areas such as mountain ecology and environment change, degradation and restoration of mountain ecosystems, mountain plants and vegetation, dynamics of debris flows, landslides and soil erosion in mountain areas, and watershed management and development.


This Collection has now been published and can be consulted on its dedicated page.

Submissions are still welcome on a rolling basis.
Papers accepted will be added to the Collection as and when they are published.
For information regarding Scientific Reports' policies on Guest Edited Collections please read this page.

About the Guest Editor
Xuyang Lu is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Mountain Hazards and Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China. His academic research focuses on the biogeochemical cycles of mountain ecosystems and their responses to climate change and human activities.  Recently his work has investigated the effect of litter and organic matter on soil C and N transformations and their microbial mechanisms. He is also involved in projects aimed at assessing the impact of policies such as grazing exclusion on Tibetan Plateau ecosystems. Prof Lu has been an Editorial Board Member for Scientific Reports since 2017.
