Phytopathologia Mediterranea and COVID-19
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The world COVID-19 pandemic is affecting us all. Those closely associated with Phytopathologia Mediterranea and Firenze University Press express our very best wishes to everyone in this challenging time. The plant pathology community stands in solidarity with medical staff and researchers, who are treating patients and searching for scientific solutions to this global medical threat. As researchers and citizens around the world we work together to slow the spread of COVID-19. People closely associated with the journal are working remotely. Nevertheless, we are processing submissions and communications as normal, and will continue to deliver information resources across our platform. This involves continued support for authors, reviewers, and volunteer editors, with additional flexibility and extended deadlines if needed. We are all in this together, and look forward to solutions to the current situation over the coming weeks and months.

Phytopathologia Mediterranea is an international journal edited by the Mediterranean Phytopathological Union. The journal’s mission is the promotion of plant health for Mediterranean crops, climate and regions, safe food production, and the transfer of new knowledge on plant diseases and their sustainable management. The journal deals with all areas of plant pathology, including etiology, epidemiology, disease control, biochemical and physiological aspects, and utilization of molecular technologies. All types of plant pathogens are covered, including fungi, oomycetes, nematodes, protozoa, bacteria, phytoplasmas, viruses, and viroids. The journal also gives a special attention to research on mycotoxins, biological and integrated management of plant diseases, and the use of natural substances in disease and weed control. The journal focuses on pathology of Mediterranean crops grown throughout the world.
