Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Forest trees are important resources that possess multiple values in ecological balance and economic development. They provide raw materials and products for various industries, such as timber, paper and furniture, to support local communities. The long-term health of forests needs to be enhanced by research outputs on forest tree genetics and breeding aiming to understand the genetic basis of complex traits. This field involves the study of genetic variation, identification/manipulation of genes or markers and the development of breeding strategies to improve important traits. The achievements of such studies are often attributed to the use of modern technologies such as high-throughput sequencing, genome editing and genome-wide association studies. This Special Issue will present the latest progress in the field of forest tree genetics and breeding, highlighting the potential of these studies in enhancing forest diversity, productivity and adaptability to changing environments.

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. Plants is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
