Dear Colleagues,

As follows from the title, this Topical Collection “Feature Papers in Plant Development and Morphogenesis” aims to collect high-quality research articles, short communications, and review articles in all fields about the latest studies of Plant Development and Morphogenesis.

For the selected works of this section on Plant Development and Morphogenesis, we will focus on research questions that address the significant concerns within plant growth, development, and morphogenesis, including interdisciplinary studies with an emphasis on plant development and morphogenesis under biotic and abiotic stress. Topics covered by the section include but are not limited to:

  • Initiation, growth, and morphogenesis of plant organs and tissues
  • Apical meristem development
  • Embryo and seed development
  • Germination and seedling development
  • Plant reproduction
  • Root nodule and mycorrhiza
  • Development and morphogenesis of plant under stress
  • Hormonal regulation of developmental processes
  • Plant adaptation and integrity
  • Evolution of developmental mechanisms
