Special Issue on Plant Diversity

Vegetation surveys identify the plant species in each plot, how many species are present, and the fraction of the total plot area each species covered. The latter two are referred to as species diversity and percent cover respectively.  Samples of biomass are cut from each plot to estimate biomass growth through the summer. 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 diversity.

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

  • Plant systematics and taxonomy
  • Plant evolution and diversity
  • Phytotaxonomy and systematics
  • Morphology, anatomy and geobotany
  • Plant genetic diversity
  • Plant species diversity
  • Diversity of functions
  • Diversity, evolution, and ecology of secondary metabolites
  • Genetic diversity and conservation
  • Characteristics and life cycles of bryophytes, pteridophytes, gymnosperms, and angiosperms
  • Plant diversity and ecosystem productivity

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 Diversity” should be selected during your Submission.
