Special issue "The Evolution of Tree Diversity"


The journal Genome (ISSN (print): 0831-2796: ISSN (electronic): 1480-3321) is soliciting submissions for a Special Issue entitled “The Evolution of Tree Diversity.” Drs. SC Gonzalez-Martinez of INRA (France), A Hipp of The Morton Arboretum (USA), and JP Jaramillo-Correa of UNAM (Mexico), are serving as Guest Editors.  This special issue will highlight recent advances in molecular approaches to studying how tree diversity evolves at different time scales. We welcome research and methods papers, and reviews in the areas of tree phylogenetics, speciation, hybridization, adaptation, and other topics, mostly using genomic approaches to understanding the evolution of trees and the maintenance of its genetic diversity.
Our ability to reconstruct the evolutionary history of populations, species, and genomes has increased immensely in the past ten years. With finer scale molecular data, we have much higher power to distinguish between gene flow and shared ancestry, identify genes involved in both differentiation and introgression, and infer the history of genome evolution. One of the fundamental questions of evolution—how do lineages and species come into existence and maintain their distinctiveness over time?—is more amenable to direct study now than it has ever been. This special issue will explore new approaches to this old question.

Preference will be given to manuscripts focusing on evolutionary processes leading to adaptive or demographic changes and their relationship with species history across a wide spectrum of population/phylogenetic depths, or other topics that align with the main subject of IUFRO Genomics and Forest Tree Genetics Conference (, particularly sessions #1 and #4. We also encourage other contributions from the forest tree genetics and genomics community.  If you are interested in being part of this Special Issue, please send a tentative title, author list and abstract to

The submission deadline is 1 September 2016, with a target publication date mid 2017.

Genome is an international, peer-reviewed journal published by NRC Research Press, a division of Canadian Science Publishing. This monthly journal, established in 1959, publishes original research articles, reviews, mini-reviews, current opinions, and commentaries. The areas of interest include general genetics and genomics, cytogenetics, molecular and evolutionary genetics, population genetics, developmental genetics, as well as emerging areas such as ecological, comparative, and functional genomics. Genome also publishes empirical and theoretical papers on DNA barcoding. Barcoding topics include but are not limited to conservation, species boundary studies and biodiversity quantification, phylogenetics and phylogeography, medical diagnosis, molecular forensics, biosecurity, and education.
