Special Issue "Abiotic Stress in Tree Species"

Most terrestrial biodiversity is built on the living foundations of trees. Trees are unique with their woody bodies, which requires water and nutrient uptake from underground to tens of meters elevated photosynthetic canopies. The growth and development of trees are susceptible to environmental changes such as drought, soil salinity, heavy metal ion stress and extreme temperatures. Therefore, abiotic stress signaling and physiological response might distinct with herb plants. This Special Issue plans to give an overview of the most recent advances in the research field of abiotic stress in tree species. This Special Issue is aimed at providing selected contributions on advances in the stress sensing, signal transduction, physiological response of tree species under water deficit, salinity, cold, heat, heavy metal stress and other environmental changes.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Drought stress signaling and responses;
- Cold and heat stress signaling and responses;
- Ionic stress signaling;
- Ca2+ and ROS signaling;
- ER stress;
- ABA response and signaling;
- Stomata movement regulation;
- Organelle interaction in abiotic stress.

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. Forests 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.
