    Special Issue on Plant Growth and Development


    Plant Development is the process of a plant changing from one growth stage to another. This could be the development of tillers on a grass plant or flower buds on a legume plant. Plant development is the major factor affecting forage quality. Plants change from vegetative to reproductive stages, forage quality decreases. When in the reproductive stage, both grasses and legumes produce. 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 plant growth and development.


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


    • Special features of plant development
    • Cell wall, cell division, and cell growth
    • Embryogenesis
    • Determination, differentiation, and dedifferentiation in plants
    • Molecular and genetic tools for study of plant development
    • General features of plant hormones, their analysis, and quantitation
