Special Issue "Advance Research in Plant-Fungi Interactions"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2024 | Viewed by 2346
In the past decades, the plant-fungus interactions, including mycorrhizal, parasitic or endophytic lifestyles, have been extensively studied at various aspects and have greatly improved our understanding. Among them, the symbiotic association of mycorrhiza is commonly found in most of vascular plants, mainly including arbuscular mycorrhiza, ectomycorrhiza, ericoid mycorrhiza and orchid mycorrhiza. Mycorrhizal fungi benefit most plants by enhancing their nutrient access and stress tolerance, and therefore strongly affect plant population and community biology by regulating seedling establishment and species coexistence. In this Topic, the interactions between plants and fungi will be considered. This includes but no limits, functional omics, molecular communication, coevolution, ecological adaption and nutrient modes of plant-fungi interactions, and applications of fungi for sustainable environmental management and plant conservation.
This Special Issue on “Advance Research in Plant-Fungi Interactions” is open to all researchers studying this interaction at any level, from both the plant and the fungi side. Papers are welcome as original research articles, as well as review papers dealing with the advancement and current understanding of various aspects of plant-fungus interactions.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
