In this Special Issue, current trends in research on plant responses to the changing environment are highlighted. Several studies consider plant responses to the mixture of interacting stresses that will accompany climate change, including drought, heat, high light and increased CO2 concentrations.

Call for Papers: Plant Reproductive Ecology and Evolution in a Changing Mediterranean Climate

Traits of plant species in mediterranean type ecosystems (MTE) are directly related to their reproductive ecology and and their colonisation history. They offer the opportunity to test ecological and evolutionary hypotheses that are critical to our understanding of the evolution of the diversity that characterize MTE regions. In this issue we aim to bring together current research from different disciplines (pollination biology, breeding system evolution, phylogenetics, comparative biology, conservation biology, and population genetics) to provide a comprehensive examination of patterns and processes in plant reproduction that relate to the high biological diversity of MTEs.

Deadline for submissions is 28th February 2017.
