Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
This Special Issue aims to address all of the aspects related to tree pollen and the pollination phenomenon. For us, pollen of allergenic and forest forming species are of special interest, but findings about rare, protected species are also welcome. This Issue invites studies on the pollen grains’ morphology, viability, production, release, and chemical composition; relationships between pollen production and seed production; pollen dispersal in the context of gene flow; long distance transport; and pollen forecasts. Studies on the impact of environmental factors, including anthropogenic ones, on all aspects of tree pollen and pollination, will be of particular interest. The results of field and laboratory experiments/research will be welcome. We are interested in recent advances in studies on the impact of climate change on pollination phenology; temporal variations and spatial differentiations in pollination patterns; and relationships between the course of pollination and the pollen season. Research articles may focus on modelling, application of GIS, and remote sensing methods in pollination phenology. We also encourage authors to publish results regarding the relationship between pollen fall and the vegetation of forest stands, as well as on natural and semi-natural forests as bee pollen sources.
We hope that the collected manuscripts will identify and fill the gaps in knowledge, and will also be an inspiration for further research.

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. 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 1800 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.
