Dear colleagues,

The open access journal Water (ISSN 2073-4441, IF2020 3.103) is pleased to announce that we have launched a new Special Issue entitled « Freshwater Community Responses to Stress. » We are serving as Guest Editors for this issue.

This Special Issue aims at presenting synthetic approaches to tackle the complexity of stressor-response relationships and help for managing freshwater ecosystems and the ecological services they support. In this framework, we welcome all fundamental and applied studies at community level that include empirical observations, controlled experiments, taxonomic- (including eDNA approaches), trait-, function- and/or omics-based approaches, integrated diagnostic tool development, original reviews and the discussion of topic-related opinions.

We would like to invite you to contribute an article to the Special Issue. For more information on the issue, please visit the Special Issue website at

The paper submission deadline has been extended to December 31, 2021. Papers will be published on an ongoing basis. Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage authors to send a short abstract or tentative title to the Editorial Office in advance (

In the hope that this invitation receives your favorable consideration, we look forward to our future collaboration.

Kind regards,
Philippe Usseglio-Polatera, Olivier Dézerald & Benjamin Alric
Guest Editors
