We hereby invite you to submit an article outlining the state-of-the-art on some special features concerning plant diversity.
The papers will be presented in the form of reviews that can cover all subdivisions of biodiversity, namely: natural history, evolution, phylogeny, biogeography, conservation, and even revisions of the systematics of related taxa.
Reviews have to be written in a way that summarizes all of the actual specific knowledge about a single species or a group of species, but also on specific topics such as the effects of the forces driving evolution, methods to set plant diversity, roles of breeding in plant diversity, and strategies to conserve and/or utilize plant diversity. The review papers should include an extensive bibliography. They must represent a starting point to further research.
