Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
A large number of filamentous fungi are of agricultural importance, including the causal agents of plant diseases and biological control agents of arthropod and nematode pests. Such fungi have evolved diverse mechanisms for adaptation to broad spectrum or specific hosts and manifold lifestyles, which are believed to favor the use of host nutrients through saprophytic, pathogenic and predatory lifecycles. The post-genomic era has been witnessing progress in the exploration of molecular mechanisms underlying fungus–host interactions to combat plant diseases and develop biological control programs of arthropod and nematode pests. This Special Issue will address diverse fungus–host interactions for insights into agricultural importance of plant- and insect-pathogenic and nematophagous fungi.
This Special Issue of the Journal of Fungi will present state-of-the-art reviews and research articles on the topic of “Interactions between Filamentous Fungal Pathogens and Hosts” in order to support green agriculture.

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.
