Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Forest trees form unparalleled biomes in terms of their combined ecological, economic and social importance. Due to their wide distribution, largely random mating systems and large population sizes, most tree species present extensive genetic variation within and between populations. Although the genomic resources of various forest trees have proliferated, forest trees are still a difficult genetic system to study in many respects. For example, multigenerational evolutionary studies are often not possible due to their long generation times, their underlying biological systems are vastly different (e.g. conifers vs. angiosperms), but the availability of genomics lowers the barrier to high-quality ecological and evolutionary genomic studies in less-studied forest tree taxa. With the development and improvement of even more genomic technologies, progressively more studies on the ecological genomics of non-model organisms will provide an important theoretical and practical basis for the development of landscape and molecular ecology. For this Special Issue, we welcome research contributions from all areas, including experimental studies, genomic research methods and models, and critical reviews of pertinent literature to advance the development of forest tree ecological genomics.

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 2000 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.
