中国科学院论文精选-系列主题专辑

As part of the strategic collaboration between Elsevier and Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in journal publishing, we are proud to introduce the CAS Article Collection on:

Urban environmental studies from Chinese Academy of Sciences

Introduction:

Rapid urbanization in the past decades has resulted in enormous challenges on resources, ecosystem, and the environment. Urban ecosystem is a human dominated complex system that is continually exchanging mass, energy, and information between its dwellers and the environment (air, water, and soil). This virtual special issue reviewed those urban environmental studies contributed by CAS (Chinese Academy of Sciences) researchers to Elsevier journals in 2016. All selected papers were published in 24 Elsevier journals, covering topics on urban materials metabolism (e.g. metals, PM, or food), urban human health, and various environmental matrices (e.g. air, soil, water, and biome). The Institute of Urban Environment (IUE) was the leading academic body, contributing about 50% publications and more than 30% of scholarly interactions within the international collaborative network.

简介:

持续快速的城市化进程造成了诸多资源、生态和环境问题。城市生态系统是一个由人类主导的由城市居住者(人、动植物、微生物)和环境要素(大气、水、土壤)以及他们之间持续交互进行的物质、能量和信息交换所组成的复杂系统。本特刊回顾了中科院于2016年发表在爱斯维尔系列期刊上的、以城市生态环境研究为主题的研究型文章。这些文章被收录在24本期刊中,以统计分析、化学分析和空间分析等为主要手段,探讨了诸如城市物质代谢、人类健康、大气、土壤、水和微生物等热门话题。其中,中科院城市环境研究所发表了近50%的论文,所开展的国际国内合作占中科院在此领域总合作数的30%以上。
