The Fungi-Plant Interactions specialty section in the journal Frontiers in Fungal Biology publishes high-quality fundamental and applied peer-reviewed research across all aspects related to the interaction of fungi with plants, which can give rise to different outcomes (with both negative and positive effects) depending on the relationships.
The core topic area this section addresses plays a vital role in the elucidation of challenges faced in both fungal and plant science, considering the impact that these interactions can have on plant growth and productivity. Having an open platform specifically dedicated to fungi that mirrors our sister journal Frontiers in Plant Science, will only benefit the advancement of both fields simultaneously.
This interdisciplinary specialty section solicits advances in areas including, but not limited to:
· Fungal symbioses
· Fungal pathogenesis
· Mycorrhizal fungi
· Root-associated fungi
· Biocontrol agents
· Control of fungal diseases
· Fungi role in improving plant nutrition
· Fungal communities in plant microbiome
· Climate change impact on fungal communities associated to plants
All studies must contribute significant insight into known or novel fungi-plant interactions. Technical reports and works focusing only solely on fungal biology should be submitted to the appropriate specialty section within Frontiers in Fungal Biology.
Research focused on plant responses and physiology do not fall within the scope of this section and should be submitted to our sister journal Frontiers in Plant Science.
