Phylogenetic relationships of two endemic eyebright species from the eastern European Alps

Mountain ranges host a considerable number of endemic species, which is considered to be the result of the complex origin of mountain ranges, shaped...

A framework for easy plant model integration

A new tool links models of different languages and scales to create entire plants, fields, or regions in silico.

Modeling-Guided High-Yielding Crops

When it comes to meeting the projected 70% increase in food demand in 2050, Dr. Xinguang Zhu considers photosynthetic efficiency to be an unexplored...

The modelling, allocation and redistribution of biomass

Evaluation of a generic biomass partitioning model demonstrates accurate temporal patterns of biomass and nitrogen partitioning.

Teaching plant anatomy, via hangman?

Plant Anatomy: A Concept-Based Approach to the Structure of Seed Plants by Richard Crang, Sheila Lyons-Sobaski and Robert Wise, 2018. Springer. I suspect that anybody...

Dwarf shrubs from the Tibetan Plateau yield signals of past air moisture

How can you work out what the climate was like in the past, without having had someone take measurements? One solution is to look...

Photosynthetic capacity, respiration and growth of two papaya genotypes with different chlorophyll concentrations

Papaya is the most economically important species within the Caricaceae family and it is widely cultivated not only for fruit consumption, but also for...

Floral colour structure in two Australian herbaceous communities

Pollinator-mediated interactions between plant species may affect the composition of angiosperm communities. Floral colour signals should play a role in these interactions, but the...

An approach to determining anthocyanin synthesis enzyme gene expression in an evolutionary context

Floral colour in angiosperms can be controlled by variations in the expression of the genes of the anthocyanin pathway. Floral colour shifts influence pollinator...

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.
