Introduction

Coastal ecosystems is known as one of the most productive ecosystems on the Earth, and they are playing vital roles in maintaining environmental health, sustaining economic development, and preserving biodiversity. They are also playing an increasingly important role in mitigating climate change and environmental degradation. However, coastal ecosystems are facing unprecedented challenges in the context of global change and increasing anthropogenic activities. Coastal ecosystems have become one of the most vulnerable ecosystems in the world.

“International Symposium on Coastal Ecosystems and Global Change” will be held on Apr 16-19, 2021 in Xiamen, China. 2021 also marks the 100th anniversary of Xiamen University and we welcome you to join us in celebrating the centenary. The theme of this conference is coastal ecosystems and global change. All experts and researchers from the world are welcome! See you in beautiful Xiamen!
