  • IJGI, Vol. 11, Pages 600: Spatiotemporal Changes and Driving Factors of Ecosyste...
    Rapid industrialization and urbanization have accelerated land-use changes in mountainous areas, with dramatic impacts on ecosystem health. In particular, the Qinling-Daba Mountains, as China’s central water tower, ecological green lung, and biological gene bank, have rich resource endowments and extremely high ecological value and are an important protective wall to...

  • Sustainability, Vol. 14, Pages 15941: Trend of Vegetation and Environmental Fact...
    Vegetation plays a vital role in the terrestrial ecosystem. Vegetation variations not only result from climatic and environmental change but also feed back to the climate through biogeochemical and biogeophysical processes. Previous studies have mainly focused on the influence of environmental factors on vegetation changes, but the interactions between vegetation...

  • The “Rotten” matter in A Farewell to Arms: An Ecological Gothic reading [version...
    This article uncovers the gothic tropes manifest in the “rotten” food, human bodies, landscapes, and rain in Ernest Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms through an eco-gothic perspective.
