Special Issue Information
Plants live in ever-changing environments that are often unfavorable for growth and development. Abiotic stresses such as salinity, drought, extreme temperature, metal stress and nutrient deficiency severely inhibit plant production, hindering agricultural production and threatening food security globally. Moreover, climate change and poor management options have further worsened the situation. Plants can sense stress signals and respond quickly to these adverse conditions through regulating their molecular, physiological, metabolic and developmental responses. A large number of signaling molecules participate in these processes, exhibiting intricate interactions. Understanding the possible mechanisms and signaling transduction underlying this process, combined with the advancement of genome-editing technologies, can help translate these findings into commercial outputs.

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. Biology 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 2200 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.
