Special & Virtual Issues

New Phytologist regularly produces themed issues that focus on areas of current importance – these always contain the lively Forum section, with insightful and thought-provoking commentaries, in-depth Tansley reviews and/or concise Research reviews, as well as original research papers on the same subject area. Our aim is that these issues should support the research community by bringing together timely, high quality research and opinion in a given field.
