Extremophile organisms are those that can not only withstand harsh environmental situations, but also grow optimally in such conditions. Extremophile fungi have been underexplored, bacteria and Archaea being the most studied extremophile organisms. They have surprised the academic community due to their diversity and novel metabolic characteristics, and today, fungi are proving to be no exception. Each day, more novel species are described, and many uses for extremophile fungi are in sight.
We are pleased to invite you to participate in this Special Issue whose aim is to describe the diversity of extremophile fungal species, analyze their biochemical pathways and metabolism, and describe their contribution and interaction with the biogeochemical cycles and influence on other extremophile communities, as well as their ability to produce robust enzymes or proteins which might be useful for applications in several fields such as industry, agriculture, bioremediation, etc. There is still so much to explore in extremophile fungi, and this issue will thus publish a wide range of results dealing with these interesting microorganisms.

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. Journal of Fungi is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
