Prof. Giovanni P. Martelli’s contributions to Plant Virology are seminal. He described more than 50 new virus species, genera, and families and was a recognized authority on viruses and virus diseases of grapevines. He pioneered studies on virus-host interactions at the cytopathological level and characterized the structure and nature of inclusion bodies and of intracellular sites of viral nucleic acid and protein synthesis. His epidemiological studies dealt with viruses transmitted by nematodes and mealybugs or via seeds and pollen. Prof. Martelli was a visionary virologist and an exceptional mentor. Sadly, Prof. Martelli passed away in January 2020. Viruses is planning a Special Issue in honor of his work and scientific legacy. We invite submissions on topics related to Prof. Martelli’s research such as viruses and virus diseases of Mediterranean crops, including vegetables, grapevines, fruit trees, and ornamentals. Original research reports, reviews, and brief commentaries on Prof. Martelli’s influence on the field are welcome. We look forward to receiving your manuscripts.
