Call for submissions

Special Issue: Legumes

Deadline: Nov 30, 2017

Food security and sustainable agriculture are threatened by climate change and its impacts on food production, particularly through predicted effects on biotic and abiotic stresses. Legumes have a unique role to play in the alleviation of hunger and protein security worldwide, as well as in sustainable and resilient agriculture. Increasing the global production of pulses will provide a sustainable solution to food and protein security in coming decades. A revolution in legume research is being spearheaded by intensive multi-disciplinary efforts, together with recent advances in genetics and breeding technologies and the development to identify climate-resilient legume varieties with improved grain characteristics, so that pulse-based proteins are better used in the food chain. This Special Issue welcomes submissions of original research articles, as well as perspective and review papers on topics related to legume biology and the responses of legumes to environmental stress and climatic change, and the possible impacts on food security and environmental sustainability.
