Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Recently, there has been much progress in research on trees. However, it is still a priority to deepen our knowledge regarding the molecular mechanisms of forest trees. From metabolism to compounds, from genetic exploration to regulation of key traits, all have largely extended our understanding of the molecular biology of trees. Exploring the molecular mechanism of trees may provide us with strategies to promote tree adaptation and benefit human society. This Special Issue of IJMS, entitled “Advances in Forest Tree Physiology, Breeding and Genetic Research”, will cover a variety of physiological, cellular and molecular research including growth, development, and biotic and abiotic stress responses in trees. A major criterion for acceptance is that the work provides substantial insight into molecular mechanisms or describes new pathways governing biological processes in trees. We also welcome submissions on related research of woody species.
This Special Issue is supervised by Prof. Dr. Chenghao Li and assisted by our Topical Advisory Panel Member Dr. Jingli Yang (Northeast Forestry University).

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.
