Climate change poses ongoing challenges to vineyard sustainability and is drastically altering the global viticultural landscape vis-à-vis site suitability, selection of grapevine cultivars and rootstocks, and management practices. While viticulturists have a range of tools in their toolkit to adapt to and manage vineyards under changing environmental conditions, we have little understanding of the inherent ability of grapevines to respond and adapt to these changing conditions, particularly over long (i.e., decadal) timescales. This lack of understanding underestimates the potential plasticity that grapevines may possess to adapt to and even thrive under changing environments.
In this Special Issue of Agronomy, we feature a series of papers on the dynamic nature of grapevine ecophysiological responses to a changing environment, covering both abiotic and biotic aspects, and also the ability of grapevines to adapt under long timescales via a degree of plasticity. Due to the broad nature of this topic, papers will range from fundamental anatomical and biophysical changes to biochemical and physiological modifications relating to grapevine plasticity. Through this Special Issue, we hope to increase our nascent understanding of the phenotypic plasticity of specific traits that grapevines possess to increase resilience to a changing climate.

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.
