Fruit crops are vital sources of vegetal foods that ameliorate carbon over time and serve as models for the study of tree forest species. While the physiological status of trees is directly dependent on the structure, development, and plasticity of the vascular tissues, there is a gap in our knowledge regarding the anatomical variations present in fruit trees. Understanding the anatomy of fruit trees and its association with their response to biotic and abiotic stresses is pivotal to developing more sustainable crops. This Special Issue of Plants will highlight the anatomy of fruit trees at different stages of development, from dormancy to fruit set, tissue levels, from roots to fruits, and their physiology in relation to environmental factors that alter crop productivity.

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.
