  • Introduction

    Brazilian Native Plants have lots of traits and characteristics unknown to international scientific community, such as pharmaceutical or cosmetic industry proprieties and tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses, as well as some regional economically important extractivistics fruits and vegetables, which should be domesticated, and wild relative to agricultural crops, which should be used in breeding programs. This special issue is to improve the dissemination of advanced research and knowledge in Brazilian Native Plants research. Original research and review papers are solicited in any aspect of Brazilian Native Plants biology.


    We aim to bring important work using any biological, ecological or agricultural approach about Brazilian Native Plants to a wide international audience and therefore only publish papers with new and innovational informations on these plants. Both research and review papers are accepted.
