ACTA HYDROBIOLOGICA SINICA Holds Authors Communication Meeting on Constructed Wetland

On October 14, the journal ACTA HYDROBIOLOGICA SINICA hosted an online communication meeting with the authors of the column "Constructed Wetlands", which was live streamed for the first time on the journal's social video account. More than 800 people tuned in.   

The meeting was hosted by ZHOU Qiaohong, the editor-in-charge of the column "Constructed Wetlands". The authors of this column, Professor CHENG Shuiping from Tongji University, Professor ZHAO Yaqian from Xi'an University of Technology, and Prof. YANG Yang from Jinan University, gave presentations on the considerations on carbon and oxygen regulation in constructed wetlands, preliminary investigation on the removal effect of PFASs by a microbial fuel cell coupling system in constructed wetlands, and research on the effectiveness and mechanism of new pollutant degradation in constructed wetlands.    

For more than 30 years, China has conducted research on constructed wetlands, and these constructed wetlands combine sewage treatment, landscaping and recreation, and science education, and have great potential in improving the human and natural environment and shaping sustainable competitiveness, concluded Prof. WU Zhenbin, editorial board member of the journal and editor-in-charge of the column "Constructed Wetlands".   

Wetlands are an essential component of water conservation, a significant supply of freshwater resources, a vital ecosystem for the biodiversity of nature, and one of the most crucial places for human habitation. The 14th Meeting of the Conference of the Contracting Parties to the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands (COP14) will take place from November 5 to 13 2022 in Wuhan. In order to highlight the important research results in wetland conservation in China, the ACTA HYDROBIOLOGICA SINICA has organized a column entitled "Constructed Wetlands", which will be officially published in Volume 46, Issue 10, 2022.
