Potential benefits of flood-induced adventitious roots depend on duration of submergence

The formation of aquatic adventitious roots (ARs) is considered an important adaptation to the adverse conditions of flooding. These roots replace the original root...

Not all tropical plants can stand the heat brought by climate change

How will increasing temperatures affect plants where temperatures are hottest? A paper in the Journal of Ecology looks at plants around Kilimanjaro.

Predictive modelling for yield – bringing genotype and phenotype together

Yesterday was our final day at Bioenergy Genomics 2017. There's quite a bit of video to sort through and process, so I'll be busy...

Arabidopsis gene expression in hypobaria

Extreme hypobaria represents an environment that is mostly outside of the evolutionary experience of terrestrial plants, and yet hypobaria may be a part of...

Genetic and genomic approaches to biomass crop improvement

We’re still at Bioenergy Genomics 2017, streaming talks when we can. We'll be processing these to go on to YouTube. In the meantime you can...

Drone strikes botanical gold

Thanks to a new tool, botanists have the power to observe and operate in even more remote parts of the world than before.

Ideotypes for yield in a changing climate – drought stress and beyond

We’re still at Bioenergy Genomics 2017, streaming talks when we can. We'll be processing these to go on to YouTube. In the meantime you can...

Generating, capturing and utilising genetic variation

We’re still at Bioenergy Genomics 2017, streaming talks when we can. We'll be processing these to go on to YouTube. In the meantime you can...

Too much tubulin flips cell wall flexibility

Joseph Stinziano investigates how something you might find in jam controls how easily trees open or close access their leaves.

Climate change, land availability and biomass potential.

We're at Bioenergy Genomics 2017, streaming talks when we can. We got two yesterday. How policy makers learned to start worrying and fell out of...

Daffodils and Snowdrops react differently to warming seasons

Daffodils and Snowdrops need the right temperatures in a few seasons to germinate. Will a changing climate cause problems?

Changes in How a Plant Breathes Aren’t Always Matched by Changes in Its Anatomy

You can't predict how a Yucca gloriosa will react to drought from its anatomy alone.

New grapevine model better predicts whole-canopy gas exchange

Models considering only the maximum photosynthetic capacity for all leaves over-estimated net carbon dioxide exchange by nearly a third.

Phylogeny, age and adaptive evolution of genus Allium
