Sediment seed banks in freshwater sandstone rock pools

Results suggest that sediment seed banks may represent a significant driver of species persistence in these ecosystems.

Phyllotaxis in arabidopsis cuc2 cuc3 double mutants

In the cuc2 cuc3 double mutant of Arabidopsis thaliana the regular spiral Fibonacci phyllotaxis is disrupted and flower pedicels are fused to the inflorescence...

Genetic and tissue diversity of phenolic compounds in Citrus

A new high-throughput method allows the identification and quantitation of 64 phenolic compounds in 20 minutes.

Building a Linux computer for imaging and informatics

I'm going to show my age here, but it is 30 years since I last built my own computer! What a change. The job...

Extrafloral nectar and above- and below-ground herbivory

The highest EFN production in seedlings of Triadica sebifera (tallow tree )is induced by above-ground herbivory when below-ground herbivores are absent.

Brachypodium as a disease model for cereals (Invited Review)

Fitzgerald et al. discuss the potential of burgeoning brachypodium resources to provide new insights into the host response to infection.

Genome Editing the Plant and Animal Genomes conference series

It’s now nearly mid-way between Plant and Animal Genome Conferences held each January in San Diego. This is an annual conference where you can...

In vivo imaging of the S-locus receptor kinase in arabidopsis

Results show that full-length SRKb is localized primarily at the plasma membrane and the secreted eSRKb product is not required for self-incompatibility.

Positive pCO2–stomatal frequency relationship in Quercus

Hu et al. determine a new positive relationship between atmospheric pCO2 and stomatal frequency in Quercus guyavifolia.

Female sterility and hermaphrodites coexist in Cardamine amara

Tedder et al. report a new putative case of androdioecy in Swiss populations of the Arabidopsis relative, Cardamine amara (Brassicaceae).
