Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Regulation of Mineral Nutrients Homeostasis and Their Crosstalk in Plants 2019
Mineral nutrient homeostasis is essential for plant growth and development. Recent research has demonstrated that nutrient homeostasis interaction in plants is a general rule rather than an exception. Answering the question of how plants regulate the homeostasis of these elements and how multiple mineral nutrient signals are wired to influence plant growth is a new frontier in plant nutrition. This Special Issue is focused on introducing the latest interesting findings on the regulation of mineral nutrients homeostasis and their crosstalk in various plant species. The topics of this Special Issue will include, but are not limited to:
Roles of nutrient sensing, signalling, and transport in regulating plant growth and development.
How environmental stresses modify ions signalling pathways, ions transporters expression, mineral nutrients transport and accumulation in plants.
How mineral nutrients homeostasis interact with each other to influence plant growth and development.
How use big data and systems biology approaches help to uncover the molecular basis and gene regulatory networks that govern the coordination of mineral nutrient homeostasis and plant growth.
We welcome research and review articles that will augment our understanding in this captivating field of mineral nutrient homeostasis research, which is required for devising future strategies to enhance mineral nutrition in plants and meet the challenges facing agriculture in the 21st century.

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.
