Acta Agrobotanica

The international journal Acta Agrobotanica promotes all aspects of the biology of cultivable or wild plants accompanying crops since 1953.

The journal offers Open Access publication of original research papers, short communications, and reviews dedicated to flora and phytocenoses of anthropogenically transformed areas, bee pastures, nectariferous and polleniferous taxa, plant–pollinator relationships, urban and rural habitats for entomofauna, aerobiology, cultivated plants, plant pathogens and parasites.

Call for papers: “Biostimulation and biofortification of crop plants”

To exchange the knowledge in current discussion about plant function in relation to their organs anatomy, we plan to publish an issue in December 2021 entitled “Morpho-anatomy of usable plants – function and adaptation”.

Our mission is to present for broader audience the variability of structure of useful plants in relation to coadaptations on evolutionary, molecular, biochemical, and physiological levels.

The manuscript due date is March 31, 2021. Original research papers, reviews, as well as short communications are eagerly invited.

Journal policies (including guidelines for manuscript preparation, fees) are available at:

Manuscripts submission starting point:

Please submit a manuscript to a dedicated section “Morpho-anatomy of usable plants – function and adaptation”.

The Guest Editors of the issue are:

  • Anastasiya Odintsova, University of  Lviv, Ukraine
  • Barbara Łotocka, Warsaw University of Life Sciences – SGGW, Poland

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.

Cover Page

On the cover Hamamelis japonica (f. Hamamelidaceae) is a shrub native to North America and Canada. In Poland, it flowers in December–March. Each flower has four slim strap-shaped 0.95–1.91-cm long petals. The flowers are homogamous and self-incompatible. They emit a faint odor, bear nectar, and produce abundant sticky pollen.
