Special Issue "Adapting Crops to Climate Change"
A special issue of Plants (ISSN 2223-7747).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 August 2019.

There is a general consensus that the on-going increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is resulting in increases in the mean temperature and the frequency of extreme high temperature events as well as a likely increased frequency of extreme precipitation events and drought. Thus, there is a new urgency to adapt crops to climate changes in order to reduce the impact of these environmental stresses on crop yields. Of special value are studies that investigate of these stresses in relation to elevated carbon dioxide concentrations, which can modify crop responses to environmental stresses. The aim of such research is to identify the genetic traits responsible for the adaptations, rather than only identifying adapted genotypes, although that is often a necessary first step.
