The fusarium species produces several mycotoxins spoiling crop products worldwide. Fusarium mycotoxins, known (e.g. trichothecenes) and emerging (e.g. enniatins), may have a toxic effect on both plants and animals (humans included) who ear plant products. Why do these fungal species produce mycotoxins? What they are needed for; and why are they sometimes produced in such huge amounts? These questions are the focus of present research. Moreover, original studies on this topic should also foster our knowledge of methods for detecting and quantifying Fusarium mycotoxins in different feed and foodstuffs, strategies for controlling them both at the pre- and post-harvest, and models to provide mycotoxin risk enhancement in relation to climate change and global trade. Studies published on this topic will represent a “golden basis” for further studies of Fusarium mycotoxins.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
