    Special Issue on Plants, Soil and Environment


    Soil plays a key role in plant growth. Beneficial aspects to plants include providing physical support, water, heat, nutrients, and oxygen. Mineral nutrients from the soil can dissolve in water and then become available to plants.  Although many aspects of soil are beneficial to plants, excessively high levels of trace metals (either naturally occurring or anthropogenically added) or applied herbicides can be toxic to some plants. 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 plants, soil and environment.


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


    • Interactions of plants with minerals, water and microbes
    • Anatomy and morphology of roots and plant
    • Soil biology, ecology and plant
    • Soil and plant nutrition
    • Plant nutrition and fertilization
    • The influence of climate and environment on plants


    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.
