How Important Is Leaf Realism in Functional-Structural Plant Modelling?

Making a realistic plant in a computer model is possible, but is it necessary. All the computations generating the plant slow down...

Simulated Herbivory Leads Grasses to Pass Fungal Symbionts to Their Offspring

Many grasses host symbiotic fungi, Epichloë spp. These fungi can help grasses tolerate herbivory, or help repel herbivores. But how do these...

Habitat partitioning through reproductive interference in Geranium

We’re familiar with seeing insects flit from one flower to the next, carrying pollen as they do so. What happens when they...

Improving overyielding in legume-based mixtures

A major challenge when supporting the development of intercropping systems remains the design of efficient species mixtures. The ecological processes that sustain...

Call for Papers for Annals of Botany: 3D forest models and laser scanning data

Annals of Botany will release a Special Issue inspired by the 3D Tree Models for Forest Dynamics workshop held in Helsinki, Finland.

Abscisic acid receptors in Populus canescens aid water use

Botanists show how abscisic acid receptors in poplar can ease drought stress.

Morphological and physiological traits determine Arundo drought recovery

Arundo donax often reproduces clonally, but a new study finds small differences can affect how it recovers from drought stress.

Miscanthus response to combinations of salinity and drought

As mentioned a couple of days ago, there's a big push to try growing biofuels on marginal land. "Since irrigation of biomass crops is...

Where do all the Epipactis orchids come from?

Botanists use the orchid genus Epipactis as a model for speciation, but unravelling its family tree has been difficult.

Why do cabbage leaves smell? They’re storing sulphur.

Sulphur (S) is an essential macronutrient for seeds, so why do brassicas store it in leaves?
