    Special Issue on Seedless Plants

     

    An incredible variety of seedless plants populates the terrestrial landscape. Mosses may grow on a tree trunk, and horsetails may display their jointed stems and spindly leaves across the forest floor. Today, seedless plants represent only a small fraction of the plants in our environment; yet, three hundred million years ago, seedless plants dominated the landscape and grew in the enormous swampy forests of the Carboniferous period. Their decomposition created large deposits of coal that we mine today.  The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in this area of seedless plants.

     

    In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore seedless plants. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:

     

    • Reproduction of seedless plants
    • Seedless vascular plants
    • Bryophytes
    • Liverworts
    • Hornworts
    • Mosses

     

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.

     

    Please kindly specify the Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue - Seedless Plants” should be selected during your submission.
