Plants grow and reproduce in complex environments, and plants are subject to a variety of chemical and physical abiotic stresses, including low temperature, high temperature, drought, salinity, flooding, excess light, ultraviolet radiation, mineral nutrient deficiency, oxygen deficiency, injuries, and air, soil or water pollution with substances such as heavy metals, pesticides, ozone and sulfur dioxide. These abiotic stresses can negatively affect plant physiology and biochemistry, and further affect the growth and development of plants. In order to cope with abiotic stress, plants tolerate, resist, or avoid the harm of stress through various mechanisms. Over the past few decades, a variety of novel methods/technologies have been used to study the damage to plants caused by stress, as well as the plants’ responses and defense mechanisms. This Special Issue of Plants, primarily focused on phytoremediation and plant stress physiology, will cover a wide variety of areas, such as the effects of various abiotic stresses on plants, plant stress resistance genes, the regulatory network of stress resistance, and the role of hormones in plant stress resistance. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an up-to-date understanding of plant responses to abiotic stress.

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.
