Special Issue "The Environmental Adaptation of Wheat"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 December 2023 | Viewed by 1939
Interests: identification and mechanism of genes related to important agronomic traits and root development in wheat; the discovery and mechanism of heat tolerance genes in wheat; molecular design breeding for stress resistance in wheat
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), the most widely cultivated crop, contributes about one-fifth of the total calories for humans. Then, the growth, yield, and quality of wheat are adversely affected by all kinds of environmental stresses. Understanding the environmental stress responses and adaptations is important to improve wheat’s environmental stress-resistance. Corresponding genetic basis of wheat environmental adaptation would provide plausible options to enhance the stress resistance for futural wheat cultivars, to guarantee the wheat products’ sustainable supply. In the context of this Special Issue, the loci, genes, and elite alleles of wheat environmental adaptation are particularly focused for further mechanism study and wheat breeding practices.
In this Special Issue, we aim to exchange knowledge on any aspect related to genetic and physiological wheat adaptation to environmental changes, to maintain wheat production in all kinds of adverse environments.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Agronomy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
