Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Fungi are a group of organisms with a high level of diversity, and are well known as the second most speciose group after insects; hence, it is challenging to complete the global fungal diversity estimates compared to other organisms. In various ecosystems, fungi are found as pathogens, decomposers, and mutualists, and are of significant ecological value as they impact nearly every component of ecosystem services, while in most cases the role of an individual fungus in nature is still unknown. Despite the fungal diversity that science has revealed and their innumerable roles in ecology, health, and industry, much about these unique organisms remains a mystery.

This topic will cover all fungi-related subjects: taxonomy, phylogeny, pathology, toxicology, ecology, and biotechnology. Both original and review articles are welcome.

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. Diversity 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.
