Meet the Editors

We caught up with Editor Frantisek Baluska to find out what sets Plant Signaling & Behavior apart from its competitors and what research he and his fellow Editors are interested in receiving in 2019.

Here's what he had to say...

"In 2005, the journal Plant Signaling & Behavior was conceived and named based on a broad internet discussion. It was an exciting experience, in which many interested scientists participated. The result is that from the very beginning there has been a wide sense of identification and support for the journal amongst the community.

Plant Signaling & Behavior's Editors, Associate Editors, and Editorial Board represent a broad variety of experts. All of whom are able to identify a large number of qualified peer reviewers through their professional associations.

Many peer reviewers, who are impressed with the breadth and quality of the papers in the journal, are motivated to submit their own manuscripts for publication. The large number of readers and subscribers also ensure an active visibility for the journal on social media."

Why this research might be of interest to you

Plant Immunity is closely connected to MAP kinases and ROS production (Kawasaki et al). Natural variation in daily rhythms of GIGANTEA expression is relevant for development and adaptation of plants (de Montaigu and Coupland). Plethora expression patterns relevant for root and nodule biology are conserved among the Arabidopsis and Medicago (Franssen et al).

PEN1, PEN2 and PEN3 are components of the SNARE-based regulon are co-regulated in root cells undergoing defense (Klink et al). bZIP28 and HSFA2 emerge as putative heat sensors in plants acting via ROS signaling (Kataoka et al). IQD proteins associate with microtubules and act as hub of cellular calcium and auxin signaling (Bürstenbinder et al). Genes that control flowering in orchids are discussed from broader perspectives of plant floral transitions and orchid breeding (Wang et al). Stomatal conductances increasing with high temperatures allow plants to benefit from increased evaporative cooling during the heat waves (Urban et al).
