Cerrado is a special South American biome with some of the richest flora among the world’s savannas, characterized by unique vegetation types and high levels of endemism. Cerrado is usually applied to designate different vegetal formations that occur in central Brazil, one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots. Fire, drought, and limited nutrient resources modify plant life, and such adaptions are especially observed in the species that occur in Cerrado. This Special Issue titled “Plant Life in Cerrado” aims to identify the current strengths and weaknesses in the plant life in the specific biome of Cerrado. Original research papers, as well as reviews and perspectives, are welcome. We are interested in receiving papers that address various plant strategies to survive in Cerrado: modification of plant anatomy and morphology, evolution and genetics, special physiological and ecological adaptations to survive fire and drought, and plant–plant and plant–animal interactions.

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.
