Climate change threatens the first line of defence against coastal storms

When the storms come in, plants could help secure natural defences. But climate change is giving them problems of their own.

Scientists find critical receptor that allows plant cells to pass stress signals

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is well-known for its role in cells as acting almost like currency for energy storage. Research by Elsa Matthus...

Aquaporins and apoplastic barriers in nutrient-limited barley

Aquaporins can change their activity reversibly, if exposed to a change in nutrients.

Is auxin behind adventitious root formation in petunia cuttings?

Yes, but you'll need nitrogen and somewhere dark.

Impact of sodic soils on wheat coleoptile length and root angle

How do plants emerge from the ground in tough sodium-rich soils?

Woody plants work with microbes to shape the soil they live in

The B-horizon in soil is created through interactions between plants and rhizosphere organisms.

Maize is better when it’s hairy

Root hairs help maize take up phosphorus from the soil.

CIPK9 regulates ammonium-dependent root growth in rice

What interacts with IDD10 to manage ammonium uptake in rice? New research points to CIPK9.

Wild tomatoes have the genes to partner with fungi

Foraging for nutrients is easier when something else does it for you, but how can tomatoes better attract a partner?

Wild relatives of beans retain useful drought resistance

A new study of wild crop relatives of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) finds they retain useful adaptations to drought stress.
