Special Issue "Abiotic Stress Tolerance in Plants: The Regulation of Reactive Oxygen Species and Plant Hormones"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2024 | Viewed by 6515
Abiotic stresses can have negative impacts on crop yield worldwide due to the inhibition of plant growth and development. These stresses, such as low or high temperature, high salinity, heavy metals, and high CO2 concentration, are already threatening to ensure sustainable agriculture in ecosystems. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) can be induced by oxidative damage to DNA, RNA, molecules, and lipid peroxidation, and can lead to cell destruction in plants. Furthermore, plant hormones, such as abscisic acid, auxin, brassinosteroid, gibberellin, cytokinin, ethylene, salicylic acid, jasmonate, and strigolactones, are known to play crucial roles in the stress responses of plant.
Various molecular and computational approaches are used to find genomic clues associated with stress tolerance in the regulation of ROS and hormones. This Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences journal, titled “Abiotic Stress Tolerance in Plants: The Regulation of Reactive Oxygen Species and Plant Hormones”, aims to summarize these views.

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.
