Functional Plant Biology is an international peer-reviewed scientific journal published by CSIRO Publishing. The journal publishes papers of a broad interest that advance knowledge on mechanisms by which plants operate and interact with their environment. Of specific interest are mechanisms and signal transduction pathways by which plants adapt to extreme environmental conditions such as high and low temperatures, drought, flooding, salinity, pathogens, and other major abiotic and biotic stress factors.

Functional Plant Biology covers all aspects of plant physiology, including biochemistry, biophysics, developmental biology, cell and molecular biology, and plant-environment and plant-microbe interactions, and the integration of all of these areas. The journal publishes full papers on experimental or theoretical work, review articles, Viewpoints, Research Notes, Methodological papers, and Comments.

The current Editor-in-Chief is Sergey Shabala (University of Tasmania).
