Dear international colleagues,
First of all, happy holidays everyone!
I am writing to you in my role as Specialty Chief Editor representing the editorial team
of Frontiers in Forests and Global Change – Pests, Pathogens and
(IF: 4.332). I would like to invite you all to consider submission of research topics or
individual research papers. We are specifically interested in regionally focused research
topics or articles. For example, topics and papers around pests and pathogens in Southeast
Asia, or pests and pathogens in Central Africa, etcetera.
Other topics of interest revolve around the issue of invasions by non-native pests and
pathogens, specifically the issues of prediction of invaders and target
countries/continents, and analyses of introduction pathways, including means of
introduction (lives plants for planting, dunnage, etc.) and predominant global trade
routes. Other topics around aspects of biotech and machine learning to exploit biological
and genetic data are also of high interest.
I hope you will consider submitting to the journal soon, and with this I wish you all the
best for a successful 2023!
