Special Issue "Molecular Markers in Forest Management and Tree Breeding"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2023 | Viewed by 1118
This Special Issue, “Molecular Markers in Forest Management and Tree Breeding”, refers to the use of genetic techniques, specifically the use of molecular markers, to improve the management and breeding of forest tree populations. This Issue aims to identify specific genetic traits that are associated with important characteristics, such as disease resistance, growth rate, and wood quality, as well as the use of marker-assisted selection to improve the efficiency of tree breeding programs. This Special Issue will likely include articles discussing the latest research and advances in this field, as well as case studies and practical applications of molecular markers in forest management and tree breeding.

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. Forests is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 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.
