Interactions between plants and organisms that attack them is an ever-evolving subject of study that continues to pique the interest of a growing number of scientists with diverse research backgrounds. The evolution of plant defense responses is tightly interlinked with the evolution of attackers. A successful plant defense response relies on the early detection of an intruder, the quick activation of immediate defenses, and the establishment of long-term resistance to biotic stress. A successful attack, in turn, relies on evading, overcoming, or suppressing these mechanisms.
This Special Issue, entitled “Plant Response to Insects and Microbes”, is open to all researchers studying these interactions at any level or time scale from either the plant or biotic stressor side. Original research articles and review papers dealing with the advancement and current understanding of diverse aspects of plant interactions with biotic stressors are welcome.
