Special Issue "Ecology, Identification and Management of Forest Diseases"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 October 2021.
The protection of forests from biotic diseases and abiotic disorders is crucial for the conservation of biodiversity and the environmental, ecological, and social roles of forest ecosystems. In the last several decades, international trade and climate change have been increasing the threat to forest ecosystems posed by new diseases worldwide. In this context, it is essential to expand knowledge on forest pathosystems, ecological aspects of forest pathogens, and sustainable control strategies. This Special Issue aims to explore pathological problems occurring in natural and semi-natural forest ecosystems, as well as forest nurseries. We invite contributions which provide new insights into the ecology, etiology, and management of forest diseases. Original research works on practical aspects of forest disease diagnosis, epidemiology, and population genetics of forest plant pathogens are also welcome.
