    Special Issue on Plant Pathology and Plant Diseases


    Central to plant pathology is the disease triangle, a model showing the interactions between host, pathogen, and environment that lead to disease. For disease to occur, conditions for all of these components must be optimal. Disease-suppressive soils manipulate the environment, reducing conduciveness to disease despite the presence of a pathogen and susceptible host .  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 pathology and plant diseases.


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



    • Pathological analysis
    • Plant pathogens
    • Plant disease epidemiology
    • Physiological plant disorders
    • Molecular methods in plant disease diagnostics
    • Disease resistance
    • Management of plant diseases



    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 - Plant Pathology and Plant Diseases” should be selected during your submission.
