Special Issue "Tree Responses to Drought"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (14 February 2020).
Drought-induced tree mortality is expected to increase in many regions under the current climate change scenarios, and shifts in forest community composition and structure driven by changes in interspecific and intraspecific competition are very likely to occur, as water becomes an increasingly limiting resource in the future. Owing to the large variation in the root, crown, and hydraulic architecture and physiological traits, trees respond to drought in various and complex ways, with a high degree of inter- and intra-species specificity. Moreover, the environmental requirements commonly change spatially across a species’ distribution range, and also temporally with life stage.
This Special Issue is calling for original and innovative papers on anatomical, morphological, molecular, and physiological tree responses to drought, at the a, organ, and whole-plant level, from the seedling phase to the mature stage.

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.
