Special Issue "Genetic Adaptation of Agroforestry to Climate Change: Diversity, Development and Function"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 January 2024 | Viewed by 403
During their long-term environmental adaptation, forest plants have created their own survival mechanisms, which contain the diversity of their gene resources and gene expression regulation mechanisms. In this Special Issue, we intend to focus on the gene identification, functional evaluation, and expression regulation process in forest species in adaptation to various environmental conditions, so as to examine their diversity adaptation mechanisms and potentially provide a blueprint and greater gene resources for the molecular design and breeding of forest trees.
We are interested in papers on topics including the following:
- Gene identification and functional evaluation;
- Gene diversity in adaption to growth conditions;
- Gene alternative splicing in adaption to growth conditions;
- Gene expression regulation in adaption to growth conditions;
- Gene networks in adaption to growth conditions;
- Genetic transformation of forest trees.

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.
- alternative splicing
- abiotic stress
- gene editing
