Special Issue Information
New advances and research in plant reproductive ecology continue to provide key insights into the conservation of plant species. Similarly, the emerging technologies, techniques, and tools in data collection and analyses continue to advance the field of plant conservation biology, allowing for discoveries and interpretations that were not feasible at the beginning of the century. For this Special Issue of Plants, we are seeking papers to cover a wide variety of perspectives in ecology, systematics, population genetics, modeling, seed ecology, mutualist and antagonistic interactions, etc., toward advancing the fields of reproductive ecology and the conservation of plants. We welcome single species to multiple species papers that include broader implications within the subject matter of the Special Issue. We want to highlight work conducted with vascular plants, nonvascular plants, and lichens. In addition, we are seeking different research viewpoints and perspectives within academia, botanical gardens, herbarium collections, natural heritage programs, etc. Lastly, our vision for this Special Issue of Plants is to capture a global perspective of plant reproductive ecology and conservation biology, and as such, we welcome and encourage submission from around the world.
