William (Tam) Salter is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences and Sydney Institute of Agriculture at the University of Sydney. He has a bachelor degree in Ecological Science (Hons) from the University of Edinburgh and a PhD in plant ecophysiology from the University of Sydney. Tam is interested in the identification and elucidation of plant traits that could be useful for ecosystem resilience and future food security under global environmental change. He also has an active interest in effective scientific communication.

Simulating the effects of local adaptation and life history on the ability of plants to track climate shifts

Local adaptation is common but not universal in plants and results from the interplay of gene flow with natural selection. Gene flow...

Range-wide genetic structure of an endemic herb from the Amazonian Savannas

The study assesses neutral and adaptive genetic structure and genetic diversity in Brasilianthus carajensis (Melastomataceae), an endemic herb from Amazonian Savannas.

Stomatal anatomy coordinates leaf size with Rubisco kinetics in Limonium

Stomatal anatomy integrates Rubisco kinetics and leaf size in Limonium species, consistent with selection on functional coordination and shared developmental pathways.

Regulatory effect of phosphorus and nitrogen on nodulation and plant performance of shrubby legumes

The four species showed similar patterns in their absorption and use of phosphorus and nitrogen.

Evolution of increased vigour associated with allopolyploidization in a newly formed invasive species

Polyploidy (whole genome duplication) is one of the most important processes in plant evolution. Most land plants have an evolutionary history that...

Expression of the sesame MYB transcription factor SiMYB305 boosts tolerance to drought and salt stress in Arabidopsis

Improving crop tolerance to environmental stresses is of paramount importance to global food security. To protect themselves from abiotic stress, plants translate...

Root flavonoids are related to enhanced AMF colonization of an invasive tree

Pei et al. investigated AMF colonization in populations of the Chinese tallow tree (Triadica sebifera).

Using genetic analyses to understand population structure and genet assignment of a clonal forest-floor herb

Tsujimoto et al. investigated how ramets belonging to different genets were distributed in a natural population of Carrdamine leucantha in Hokkaido, Japan.

Are males and females produced in equal proportions in the sexually cryptic coco de mer?

Morgan et al. explores sex ratios in populations of Lodoicea maldivica in the Seychelles.

Continuous variation in herkogamy in Mediterranean honeysuckle populations

Herkogamy, the spatial separation of sex organs in hermaphroditic plants, is thought to have evolved to reduce self-pollination and inbreeding within a...
