From the website:
"Nature Plants is concerned with all aspects of plants be it their evolution, development or metabolism, their interactions with the environment, or their societal significance. Publishing monthly it will have a particular interest in studies that advance knowledge and inform development across a diversity of areas.
Nature Plants is committed to publishing primary research into the molecular biology, physiology and ecology of plants—in both the basic and applied research spheres—as well as investigations into the relationship between humanity and the plant kingdom. In so doing, Nature Plants will provide a fully rounded picture of the most accomplished and significant advances in the plant sciences.
Like all Nature-branded journals, Nature Plants will be characterised by a fair and rigorous peer-review process, high standards of copy-editing and production, swift publication and editorial independence.
In addition to publishing original research, Nature Plants will deliver News, Commentaries, Reviews, News and Views, and Features from across the full range of disciplines concerned with the plant sciences. By providing a holistic approach to the science of plants, Nature Plants will be an invaluable source for researchers, technologists and policy makers alike."
