Dale Maylea was a system for adding value to press releases. Now he's a manual algorithm for blogging any papers that Alun Salt thinks are interesting. The idea being telling people about an interesting paper NOW beats telling people about an interesting paper at some time in the future, when there's time to sit down and take things slowly.

When speed is a problem in mangrove restoration

Rapid restoration isn't always the best restoration, when the restoring species is invasive.

Last stand of the Saharan Cypress?

A new article in Planta attempts to help preserve a tree that has survived in the Sahara for thousands of years.

Early Lateral Root Development Is Driven by Thirst

Roots are critical for plants to find water and nutrients. They can also be expensive to grow, so a plant needs to...

Migration of plant species will not compensate for losses in diversity in a warming world

Climate is likely to change faster than many plant populations can travel, reducing biodiversity in the future.

Daphnia are bite-size for the carnivorous waterwheel plant

The Venus Fly Trap is not the only carnivorous plant with a snap-trap. Aldrovanda vesiculosa, the waterwheel plant, has one too but it's not always been clear how it works.

Potato-associated bacteria can act as bodyguards

Bacteria found with potatoes can help protect their hosts against late blight. The aid comes from their volatile emissions.

Identifying the biodiversity of the Mayan underworld

In the caves of Quintana Roo, there are not only stalactites hanging from the ceiling. There are tree roots too, but the roots of which trees?

A warming Antarctic is changing how mosses have sex

Mosses are reacting to rising temperatures in the Antarctic in different ways. The tiny plants could cause big changes to the food web.

Aconitum offers bees more nectar to carry its toxic pollen

Male flowers of Aconitum protect their pollen by adding alkaloids. Without pollen as a reward, botanists asked how the flower compensated pollinators.

UV light can guide flies to an Utterly Voracious plant

Students at Augustana University have found out how insects see carnivorous plants by building on each other's work in a series of projects.

Botanists Pull Apart the Genes of Bananas to See How They Came Together

Banana genes reveal how they may have passed through other hybrid stages.

Sympatric moss populations can form true hybrid zones

Hybridization between species has not been considered an important factor in the evolution of mosses. The moss life cycle has led many...

A key protein may help trigger germination in Arabidopsis seeds

Seed germination is a critical step in the life cycle of flowering plants. Since seeds contain limited reserves, seed germination has to...

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?
