Plant flavonoids are a diverse and fascinating group of plant secondary metabolites with functions in plant development, plant–microbe, plant–animal and plant–plant interactions, as well as plant chemical ecology. Exploiting the diversity and functions of flavonoids could create opportunities to design new plants and plant products for food and agricultural industries, and to improve plant–environmental interactions. In addition, the study of plant flavonoids has given us important insights into the control of plant development, structure, and function. Much remains to be discovered, as the detection of flavonoids becomes more sensitive, our tools to manipulate plant flavonoid content expand, and as our molecular understanding of flavonoid biosynthesis and transport starts to move from models to crops. This Special Issue of Plants will highlight the function, evolution, and diversity of plant flavonoids in plants, and in their role in the interactions of plants with their environment.
