Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, the effects of global warming have become increasingly severe year by year, as reported in many parts of the world by extreme weather events, which are thought to be the result of global warming. Carbon dioxide, which is thought to be one of the main causes of global warming, can be used as a carbon source for algae and plants, and thus can convert carbon dioxide in the air into organic carbon. Improving their organic carbon content can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which could provide a solution to global warming. This Special Issue focuses on research that enhances carbon fixation using algae and plants. We welcome research articles, short communications, and review articles on a wide range of topics, including the enhancement of carbon dioxide fixation itself, the production of biomass and valuable products from carbon dioxide (such as pigments, PUFAs, etc.), and the effects on the growth of algae and plants under increased carbon dioxide levels.

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.
