Call for papers for the special feature of Journal of Forest Research
Recent advances in the nitrogen-fixing symbiosis between Frankia and actinorhizal plants

Objective
More than 200 angiosperm species, distributed in 25 genera of eight families, develop root nodules (actinorhizas) with the soil nitrogen-fixing actinomycete Frankia. These plants, collectively called actinorhizal plants, are perennial and dicotyledonous and are shrubs or trees except Datisca. Actinorhizal plants are often colonizers of the open ground. Current and potential uses of actinorhizal plants include soil restoration, pulp production, lumber, windbreak, or as ornamental and horticultural plants.
The 20th International Meeting on Frankia and Actinorhizal Plants, an online conference from May 29-31, 2021, is an opportunity for scientists to communicate about the latest developments in research, regarding this symbiosis. This (symbiosis) involves several dicotyledonous plants initiating ecological succession and soil status improvement in various countries. Selected papers on plant ecology, genetics, or physiology of Frankia, their host plants, and their interactions will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Forest Research.
