Special Issue in Journal of Fungi: Diversity, Classification and Taxonomy of Aspergillus, Penicillium, Talaromyces and Related Genera (Eurotiales), 2nd Edition
Soil is one of the principal substrata of life on Earth and an important participant in the cycling of carbon and other elements in the planet. It plays vital roles in both global ecosystems and human societies. Soil microorganisms have kinds of ecological functions and shape global element cycles in life and death. They are a major engine of terrestrial biogeochemistry, driving the turnover of soil organic matter, the Earth’s largest terrestrial carbon pool.
More and more fungal species have been discovered and described from soil, and further studies for different purposes in biology and the other related disciplines are required. Nevertheless, the biodiversity of fungal species in soil is still badly underestimated and the ecological functions of them are not fully recognized.
This Special Issue will focus on biodiversity, new species/taxon of fungal species, and their ecological functions in soil communities. This Special Issue is also an exciting opportunity to combine and synthesize all knowledge that is being generated in these fields. Therefore, Diversity’s team kindly invites you to submit a manuscript on any of the above topics, as well as those addressing broader implications.

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.
