    Special Issue on Abiotic Stress in Plants


    The natural environment for plants is composed of a complex set of abiotic stresses and biotic stresses. Plant responses to these stresses are equally complex. Systems biology approaches facilitate a multi-targeted approach by allowing one to identify regulatory hubs in complex networks.

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 abiotic stress in plants.


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


    • Salt stress in plants
    • Phosphate starvation in plants
    • Flooding stress
    • Extremes of temperature
    • The role of TFs and genes in certain abiotic stress situations
    • Complexity in researching on sensors
    • Signal transduction


    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 –Abiotic Stress in Plants” should be selected during your submission.
