Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past few years, we have witnessed significant advancements in the field of Ascomycota taxonomy, unveiling the intricate complexities of this diverse fungal phylum. For this Special Issue, we are particularly interested in studies that showcase cutting-edge taxonomic revisions, descriptions of new species, updates on phylogenetic relationships, and novel approaches to understanding the ecological roles of Ascomycota in various ecosystems.

This Special Issue of JoF, entitled “Diversity, Taxonomy, and Ecology of Ascomycota”, will showcase a comprehensive compilation of innovative studies, creating a valuable resource for researchers, educators, and enthusiasts alike. Your involvement will undoubtedly elevate the quality and impact of this publication.

We encourage you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Detailed submission guidelines can be found on the journal's website. All manuscripts will undergo rigorous peer-review to ensure that the highest scientific standards are maintained.

We firmly believe that your contribution will enrich the scientific community's understanding of Ascomycota and inspire further investigations into this group of fungi.
