    LATEST SPECIAL ISSUE | Volume 58, issues 3-4, April 2024
    Issue editor: Jitka Klimešová
    Research into, and the understanding of, belowground plant organs lags behind that of leaves, stems, flowers and other usually aboveground parts; therefore, this special issue focused on roots, rhizomes, tubers and bulbs, and their functional ecology with contributions from different biomes and covering a broad range of topics.

  • Traditional and non-traditional ways of grassland management with regards to biodiversity conservation

    FORTHCOMING SPECIAL ISSUE | Expected Early 2024
