    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    Angiosperms are plants that produce flowers and seeds in the form of fruits. With approximately 300,000 species, they are the kingdom Plantae's largest and most diverse group. Angiosperms account for roughly 80% of all known living green plants. Angiosperms are one of the most diverse and largest extant plant groups in the universe. There are approximately 453 angiosperm families with approximately 260,000 living species classified in them. Furthermore, angiosperms account for roughly 80% of all known green plants on the planet. It is well established that angiosperms are vascular seed plants in which an egg is fertilized and develops into a seed in an enclosed hollow ovary.

    Angiosperm, also known as a flowering plant, is any of approximately 300,000 species of flowering plants, the kingdom Plantae's largest and most diverse group. Biodiversity, also known as biological diversity, is the variety of life found in a specific location on Earth or, more commonly, the total variety of life on Earth. The number of species in an area is a common measure of this variety, known as species richness. Colombia and Kenya, for example, have over 1,000 breeding bird species each, whereas the forests of the United Kingdom and eastern North America have fewer than 200. A coral reef off the coast of northern Australia may have 500 fish species, whereas Japan's rocky shoreline may have only 100. Such figures capture some of the differences between locations—for example, the tropics have more cc than temperate regions—but raw species count is not the only measure of diversity.

    Manuscript Submission information

    Manuscripts should be submitted online by registering and logging in to this link. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed.
    Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent on email address:[email protected] for announcement on this website.
    Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
