Plant and Fungal Systematics

Plant and Fungal Systematics is an international, peer-reviewed, open-access, fast-track, full-color journal. Articles are published online with full pagination immediately upon acceptance, and hardcopies are published twice a year (July, December). It was founded in 1953 as Fragmenta Floristica et Geobotanica and continued as Polish Botanical Journal after 2001.

The main goal of Plant and Fungal Systematics is to promote integrated systematic biology (fusing traditional approaches, modern molecular techniques and bioinformatics tools) in order to more effectively describe plant and fungal biodiversity within a phylogenetic framework. Detailed descriptions and illustrations of morphological characters for newly introduced species, and deposition of voucher specimens, cultures, DNA sequences, alignments and phylogenies in public repositories are central to this endeavor.

Plant and Fungal Systematics publishes original research papers of the highest quality, review articles on timely subjects, and book reviews. The journal articles address the biodiversity, taxonomy, molecular systematics and evolution of algae (broadly defined), cyanobacteria, bryophytes, vascular plants, fungi, oomycetes and myxomycetes.
