Plant Abiotic Stress publishes research on the interactions of plants and environmental factors that can cause negative effects on plant growth and survival. These interactions can be analyzed and described at the cellular, biochemical, physiological, tissue, organ, whole-plant, or population level. Abiotic stress comprises all non-living factors that affect plants beyond the normal range of a specific plant’s natural, compatible/adapted environment, including extremes in temperature, water, nutrients, gasses, wind, radiation, and other environmental conditions. Welcomed studies focus on environmental stress perception, signaling, and mechanistic response at all levels. Topics covered by this section include, but are not limited to:
· Identification of genes involved in differential stress responses
· Elucidation of stress response and protection pathways
· Engineering of stress response and protection pathways
· Studies focused on stress adapted plants
· Analysis of abiotic stress responses in context of climate change, crop stability, and resilience
Studies that report responses to abiotic stress treatments without contributing to the mechanistic, or genetic, understanding of the responses observed will not be considered.
Please consider the requirements for experimental studies as listed below

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Plant Abiotic Stress welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review and Systematic Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Plant Abiotic Stress, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Plant Abiotic Stress will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Plant Science.
