Special issue: Call for papers!


We are organizing a special issue of Acta Botanica Brasilica with a tentative title of “Fundamentals and Frontiers in Floral Biology and Plant Reproduction” for the year 2018. The idea is to include reviews and original research on the subject as an effort to assemble a general panorama of the state-of-the art of this research field, both from Brazilian and global perspectives. We would like to have papers submitted and undergoing the editorial process by the end of February 2018. Submission by this deadline would help us focus on the content of the issue and in the editorial process. In order to concatenate efforts and contributions, we encourage authors to submit abstracts of prospective papers by the end of November 2017. If you need any further information contact the Editor of this special issue (Dr. Paulo Oliveira –, or the journal office ( directly.
