Pelota genes regulate root development and defense responses in rice

Seeds of the grass species rice (Oryza sativa) serve as the most widely consumed staple food especially in Asia. One of its major threats...

Plants reach the top by preparing at the bottom

Shade-intolerant plants need to be able to grow shoots rapidly. New research shows that the shoots are successful because of preparations below ground.

Plants and flood risk in Annals of Botany

Annals of Botany will have a Special Issue on Vulnerability to, and management of, plant communities in the face of increased flood risk. The increased...

Grass-legume mixtures in a cool climate

In the marginal regions of Europe, grassland-based livestock systems are dominated by grass monocultures receiving relatively high levels of fertilizer. Would the inclusion of...

Embolism resistance and dehydration tolerance in a perennial grass

More intense droughts under climate change threaten species resilience. Hydraulic strategies determine drought survival in woody species but are hardly explored in herbaceous species....

Trait variation across a plant hybrid zone 25 years in the making

In natural hybrid zones, traits often show clines, gradual variation across a gradient reflecting a balance between natural selection and gene flow. Changes over...

Ammonium uptake promotion by silicon in rice

Turgor-driven plant cell growth depends on cell wall structure and mechanics. Strengthening of cell walls on the basis of an association and interaction with...

Integration between developmental pathways during reserve mobilization in palm seeds

Palm seeds are interesting models for studying seed reserve mobilization at the tissue level due to the abundance and complexity of reserves stored in...

miR172 down-regulates the translation of cleistogamy1 in barley

Flower opening in barley (Hordeum vulgare) is induced by the swelling of the lodicule, a trait under the suppressor protein CLY1 encoded by the...

The maize lil1 gene is involved in plant growth and drought response

The brassinosteroids hormones are involved in plant development and plant–environment interactions. In this work, Castorina et al. performed a detailed analysis of lilliputian1-1 (lil1-1),...

What creates Gentiana diversity in mountains?

The Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) is extremely rich in species, but why? One recent explanation is the mountain‐geobiodiversity hypothesis (MGH) by Mosbrugger et...

Modelling Three-Dimensional Leaf Shape Variation

L-Cucumber’s leaf prototype mimics leaf shape of stressed plants.

How does variation in traits of Tunisian oak seeds affect survival?

Oaks are the dominant species of tree in many Mediterranean forests. However, the climate of the Mediterranean basin is predicted to change...

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...
