Special Issue in Journal of Fungi: Plant-Pathogenic Fusarium Species
Interests: soil-borne plant pathogens; Fusarium; plant pathogen biology and epidemiology; integrated disease management approaches
The Journal of Fungi Special Issue entitled “Plant-Pathogenic Fusarium Species” aims to highlight current research on all aspects of Fusarium biology. Experts from the fields of plant pathology, genetics, chemistry, molecular biology, and toxicology are invited to contribute their newest findings in the form of research articles, short communications, or focused reviews to increase existing knowledge on this important group of fungi.
Fusarium species are potent mycotoxin producers, which makes them one of the most devastating and dangerous plant pathogens worldwide. The most harmful groups, trichothecenes, fumonisins, and zearalenones, are a threat to the health of mammals and often show phytotoxic and antimicrobial activities.
Mycotoxin profiling is also helpful in distinguishing closely related species, but molecular tools are even more powerful in species identification and phylogeny, as the great diversity of the Fusarium genus forces scientists to continuously revise previously described taxons. All studies on these aspects are welcome to this Special Issue.

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. Journal of Fungi 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.
