The term ‘ornamental plant’ refers to all plants with ornamental value, which generally have beautiful flowers or special plant architectures. Nursery stock and ornamental plants provide greenery and beautify indoor and outdoor environments, playing a critical role in our lives by working to stimulate the imagination, revive the spirit, enhance memory retention and concentration, and significantly improve mental health and human well-being. The value of ornamental plants relies on their aesthetic appearance, including pleasing flower and/or leaf color, flower and/or leaf shape, fragrance, leaf texture and variegation, and overall plant form or architecture. Suitable subjects for discussion in ‘Recent Advances of Nursery Stock and Ornamental Plants’ include various species of trees and shrubs, perennials, biennials, annuals, bulbs, etc. With the rapid developments in techniques of molecular biology, the study of nursery stock and ornamental plants has been greatly promoted.
This Special Issue intends to focus on the latest research on nursery stock and ornamental plants. Researchers are encouraged to share their cutting-edge research in all aspects of the fields of nursery stock and ornamental plants. This includes, but is not limited to: molecular research, gene regulation, metabolomics, genomics, genetics, proteomics, epigenetic modification, biotechnology, and breeding.
