Carbon and nitrogen metabolism is the most basic metabolic process in plant growth and development, and its dynamics directly affect other important metabolic processes, such as the absorption of mineral elements, the synthesis of photosynthates and fruit quality. Changes in environmental factors, cultivation measures and mineral nutrients have important impacts on the balance of carbon and nitrogen metabolism. This Special Issue focuses on “Carbon and Nitrogen Metabolism in Trees”, which is important for promoting a rapid exchange of research results, experience, and ideas within the scientific community and among professionals working in this stimulating and relevant research field, both from agronomic and economic perspectives. Besides the specific scientific target, we would like to transfer updated and practically relevant results to farmers, SMEs, policy makers, and related end-users working on fruit production. To achieve this, we will try to select the most sound, innovative, and clear papers, ranging from the relationship between carbon and nitrogen metabolism, to the key role of carbon and nitrogen metabolism in tree growth and development, especially the formation of fruit quality and the adaptation to abiotic stresses. Original research, technology reports and methods are appropriate. In addition, new measurement methods, bioinformatical tools and joint multi-omics analysis are welcome.

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.
