This journal publishes the new results of completed, original studies on any aspect of plant physiology based also on approaches and methods of biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, molecular biology, genetic engineering, applied plant physiology, and other related fields. We also accept descriptions of original methods and instruments opening novel possibilities for obtaining and analyzing experimental results. Papers outlining trends and hypotheses are accepted as well. Brief communications are not accepted. However, in some cases, the editors may suggest that authors shorten a manuscript to the size of a brief communication (no more than 10 pages of text and 4 figures and / or tables in all). Manuscript submission implies that the material has not been published before, and is not under consideration for publication anywhere else.
