About the collection

As sessile organisms, plants must continuously adapt their development to a changing environment. They have evolved exquisite mechanisms to sustain this developmental plasticity.  Understanding these mechanisms is not only an important scientific challenge but also of utmost importance for crop genetic improvement.

The aim of this Collection is to bring together the latest advancement in plant developmental biology and stress adaptation to understand how molecular networks involved in organ growth and development help plants to cope with stress.

Submission Guidelines

Back to top

This Collection welcomes submission of original Research Articles and Reviews. 

Should you wish to submit a different article type, please read our submission guidelines to confirm that type is accepted by the journal. Articles for this Collection should be submitted via our submission system, Snapp. During the submission process you will be asked whether you are submitting to a Collection, please select "Plant Development and Environmental Interactions" from the dropdown menu.

Articles will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process and are subject to all of the journal’s standard policies. Articles will be added to the Collection as they are published.

The Editors have no competing interests with the submissions which they handle through the peer review process. The peer review of any submissions for which the Editors have competing interests is handled by another Editorial Board Member who has no competing interests.
