Introduction

Phytopathology is a multi-disciplinary science that not only includes study of plant diseases but also deals with host species such as plant science and plant physiology. Plant science is the study of diversities, functions and structures of plants. It involves studying plants living on land, in the sea and in freshw... Readmore

Aim of the Journal

The aims to publish manuscripts to highlight plant science as an interdisciplinary branch including agricultural science, Paleobotany, molecular physiology and ecology. The Journal of Plant Science and Phytopathology works with a purpose to publish various aspec... Readmore
