The environment is not always suitable for plant growth and development. To combat the adversities relating to biotic and abiotic stresses, plants need to change their metabolic pathways to adapt to the environment. During this process, some special metabolites such as defence phytohormones or flavonoids might be produced or enhanced, which will be beneficial to plant defence and help them survive under environmental stresses.
For this Special Issue, we aim to collect research that is relevant to all aspects of plant metabolomics under biotic and abiotic stresses, the positive and negative effects of some special metabolites on defence and plant growth and development, phytohormone-regulated metabolic homeostasis, and methodologies advances with regard to primary and secondary metabolisms related to plant defence. We welcome original research articles as well as in-depth reviews covering these topics.

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. Metabolites 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 2700 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.
