Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The effects of fungal pathogens in trees are expected to be stronger and more widespread in the future. Fungal pathogens can affect the whole tree: canopy, leaves, trunks, branches, and roots, and their effects may vary from mild to devastating. We need information on different aspects of tree pathogens to understand their life cycles and to consider potential ways to mitigate their harmful effects on trees. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide space for original and review papers from all research areas of tree diseases induced by fungi, including tree disease resistance and susceptibility, the epidemiology and control of fungal pathogens, and fungal pathogenesis. Papers utilizing traditional methods and/or novel molecular methods are welcome.
