About this Research Topic
The last decade, especially in recent years, has seen considerable progress in thermomorphogenesis. The field is at an exciting phase where discoveries are being made rapidly and systematically across diverse areas of thermomorphogenesis. The goal of this Research Topic is to summarize what we have known in plant thermomorphogenesis and provide a platform for presenting exciting new discoveries in this field.
We welcome submissions of different types of manuscripts including original research articles and reviews, including but not limited to:
• New mechanisms underlying temperature sensing and signaling
• Temperature signal integration with other signal cues, such as light or hormones
• Genetic and epigenetic regulation of thermal responses
• Post-transcriptional and post-translational regulation of thermal responses
• The trade-off between growth and defense response under high temperature
• Evolutionary view on plant heat adaption
• Genomic analysis for understanding crop heat adaptions
• Coordination between different organ and/or tissue development under high ambient temperature
Studies in non-model plants are welcomed, but descriptive studies lacking significant biological advances might be rejected without peer review.
Keywords: thermomorphogenesis, phytochrome, signal transduction, thermal responses, crop adaption
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
