    Special Issue on Desert Plants


    Deserts are the home to many living things. In fact, deserts are second only to tropical rainforests in the variety of plant and animal species that live there. Desert plants often look different than plants in any other biome.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring desert plants. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Plant morphology
    • Plant diversity
    • Drought tolerance
    • Plant growth in desert environment
    • Plant relationships with other organisms
    • Desert horticulture
    • Desert ecology


    Authors should read over the journal’s Authors’ Guidelines carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal at Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue – Desert Plants” should be selected during your submission.
