A Corrigendum on
Enhancing Heat Tolerance of the Little Dogwood Cornus canadensis L. f. with Introduction of a Superoxide Reductase Gene from the Hyperthermophilic Archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus

by Geng, X.-M., Liu, X., Ji, M., Hoffmann, W. A., Grunden, A., and Xiang, Q.-Y. J. (2016). Front. Plant Sci. 7:26. doi: 10.3389/fpls.2016.00026

The Author Contributions were erroneously reported in the original article. The statement that reads: “Q-YX generated and propagated the transgenic plants, conducted the gene sequencing and expression analyses, finalized figures, and manuscript revision. X-MG and Q-YX contributed equally to the projects” should have been provided as “XL generated and propagated the transgenic plants, conducted the gene sequencing and expression analyses, figure finalization, and manuscript revision. XG and XL contributed equally to the projects.” XL is a research specialist in Q-YX's lab.

This correction does not affect the scientific validity of the results.
