Call for papers: “Plant–animal interactions”

To exchange the knowledge in current discussion about plant–animal relationships, we plan to publish an issue in March 2017 (1st 2017 issue) entitled “Plant–animal interactions”.

Our mission is to present for broader audience the variability of plant–animal co-adaptations on structural, molecular and physiological level, plants’ interactions with arthropods and other organisms (e.g., pollination, herbivory, seed dispersal), and impact of animals on economic plant productivity.

We sincerely invite to prepare the papers to our special issue.

The submission due date is 2016-11-30. Original research papers, reviews as well as short communications are eagerly invited.

The guest editors of the issue are:

  • Małgorzata Stpiczyńska, University of Warsaw, Poland
  • Marcin Zych, University of Warsaw, Poland.

Journal policies (including guidelines for manuscript preparation, fees) are available at: https://pbsociety.org.pl/journals/index.php/aa/about

You will find a dedicated section for the manuscripts to be submitted for the issue – “Plant–animal interactions”.

Please contact the journal editorial office if you have any questions.

Cessation of the print edition

 

Starting from the year 2016, the Acta Agrobotanica journal will be only available as an online edition.

Therefore, the page numbers will be no longer used for citation purposes. Every article will contain citation schema with the unique article number included, which replaces pagination. In the following example the article number is 1063: Acta Agrobot. 2015;85(1):1063. Additionally, the article number will be the last part of the updated DOI pattern, e.g., the following DOI is assigned to the article number 1061: 10.5586/aa.1061.

 

Updated author guideline has been published. Authors should already prepare submissions according to this guideline.

Vol 70, No 1 (2017): Plant–animal interactions


Cover Page

On the cover A cocoo wasp Hedychrum gerstaeckeri (Hymenoptera, Chrysididae), feeding on pollen of a daisy fleabane (Erigeron annuus) – an example of complexity of plant–animal interactions. Hedychrum gerstaeckeri is a kleptoparasite laying eggs in the nests of Crabronidae wasps (e.g., Cerceris rybyensis, Philantus triangulum), and exploiting the eggs, larvae and food deposits of the host. The Crabronidae wasps in turn provide their larvae with hunted honey bees (Apis mellifera). All these adult hymenopterans feed on pollen and nectar.
