Understanding the potential impacts of future drought events on trees is critical to managing forests for resilience to climate change. Drought resilience can be enhanced through a variety of forest management practices such as stand density and age management, species selection, management of disturbance regimes, and assisted tree migration. Managing forests for drought resilience requires the identification of tree physiological mechanisms that may affect drought avoidance, resistance, and recovery, particularly in mature trees, and forest management practices that may mitigate the impacts of drought. The goal of this Special Issue is to present novel research on tree physiological responses to drought that increase our understanding of key mechanisms related to tree and forest drought resilience. Articles in this Special Issue will contribute to the development of climate adaptation strategies for the management of forest ecosystems.

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.
