Terpenoids are one of the largest groups of secondary metabolites in plants. Traditionally, specialized terpenoids are used as natural flavor and aroma compounds, which have a long history of human utilization. Moreover, the ecological functions of terpenoids as signals during plant–environment interactions have gained increased attention. Exploiting the molecular mechanism of the biosynthesis and regulation of terpenoids could uncover compounds of greater use, improve the content of metabolites derived by exogenous elicitors, or create plants with enhanced resistance by molecular breeding. This Special Issue of Plants will highlight the function, regulation, and diversity of plant terpenoids and their roles in the interactions of plants with their environment.

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.
