Light is the primary energy source and the most important regulatory factor in the life cycle of plants. Light drives photosynthesis in plants, helping them to build carbon-based materials, and further acts as an environmental signal. Plants respond to the intensity, wavelength, duration, and direction of light. Light emitting diodes (LEDs), recently applied widely for plant cultures, are environmentally-friendly and long-lasting light sources available in the spectral range covering the entire visible and near-UV regions, and supersede conventional lamps in efficiency. This Speical Issue on the “Control of LED Lighting Based on Plant Physiological Principles” will focus on the the broad area of plant growth and development including, but not limited to, germination, seedling establishment, photomorphogenesis, and the phase transition and flowering of plants using LED lighting technology.

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 papers will be 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.
