Special Issue "Ozone Tolerance Mechanisms"
A special issue of Plants (ISSN 2223-7747).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 June 2019)

Ozone is a toxic air pollutant that currently affects crops, forests, and natural vegetation in many regions of the world, with ozone levels expected to increase in the future. Plant responses to ozone stress have been studied extensively in many plant species. Genetic variation between and within species is consistently observed, evidence for the functioning of ozone tolerance mechanisms. Understanding the basis for this differential response will provide the knowledge required to improve the ozone tolerance of cultivated plants and to predict the impact of ozone stress on natural ecosystems. This Special Issue of Plants will focus on ozone tolerance mechanisms at all conceptual levels from the whole plant, individual leaves, physiological processes, cellular metabolism, gene expression, and proteomics. Contributions that elucidate phenotypic traits and DNA markers for ozone tolerance are also welcome.

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. Plants is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
