Trees - Structure and Function is now accepting submissions for a new collection titled: Trees and Restoration. Read the details here: https://bit.ly/3bhm9Wj.

The journal publishes original articles on the physiology, biochemistry, functional genomics, functional anatomy, structure and ecology of trees and other woody plants. Also presented are articles concerned with pathology and technological problems, when they contribute to the basic understanding of structure and function of trees. In addition to original articles and short communications, the journal publishes reviews on selected topics concerning the structure and function of trees.

Trees - Structure and Function is keen to publish reviews and commentaries on themes related to the scope of the journal. Before submitting a manuscript, please contact the Reviews Editor Marcos Buckeridge (msbuck@usp.br) sending a short summary of the idea.

The Editors-in-Chief of Trees - Structure and Function may pick selected articles and allocate them to particular topics (like tree rings, drought stress, mycorrhiza, etc.). These tagged articles will be brought together on SpringerLink in topical collections, easily accessible online as a service for our readers. Articles of such online collections will be processed and published in regular issues just like all other articles.

  • Covers physiology, biochemistry, functional anatomy, structure and ecology of trees and other woody plants
  • Presents research articles on pathology and technological problems that contribute to basic understanding of tree structure and function
  • Publishes reviews and special issues on selected topics

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
