Aims and Scope of the Journal Environmental and Experimental Botany:

Environmental and Experimental Botany (EEB) publishes research papers on the physical, chemical, biological, molecular mechanisms and processes involved in the responses of plants to their environment.

In addition to research papers, the journal includes review articles. Submission is in agreement with the Editors-in-Chief.

The Journal also publishes special issues which are built by invited guest editors and are related to the main themes of EEB.

The areas covered by the Journal include:

(1) Responses of plants to heavy metals and pollutants

(2) Plant/water interactions (salinity, drought, flooding)

(3) Responses of plants to radiations ranging from UV-B to infrared

(4) Plant/atmosphere relations (ozone, CO2 , temperature)

(5) Global change impacts on plant ecophysiology

(6) Biotic interactions involving environmental factors.

Each submitted manuscript related to these areas should be preferably based on an explicitly elaborated mechanistic hypothesis. The purely descriptive and following types of manuscripts are not suitable for EEB: field monitoring surveys, pure mathematical modeling without experimentations, pure correlative works, applied papers on agriculture and phytopathology, studies of plant biology, gene expression and molecular works without considering environmental aspects. The research should be based on a clear hypothesis and provide new insights on plant responses to the environment, preferably providing evidence of new mechanisms underlying plant stress resistance. Ecological studies are also encouraged if they provide a sound basis of physiological processes involved in the plant response to the environment.
