Aluminium-silicon interactions in higher plants: a brief personal history

How aluminium, silicon and two researchers are connected.

Aluminium accumulation in a temperate accumulating plant

Although aluminium (Al) is toxic for the vast majority of angiosperm plants, high concentrations of Al (i.e., > 1,000 mg·kg-1 dry mass) are found...

A plasma membrane H+-ATPase regulating soybean root resistance to aluminium toxicity

Aluminum (Al) toxicity is a major limiting factor for plant growth and crop production in acidic soils. The plasma membrane H+-ATPase is involved in...

Root adaptations to infertile soils

Phenotypic characterisation of root adaptations to infertile soils enables plant breeders to develop improved cultivars that not only yield more, but also contribute to...

Aluminum alleviates manganese toxicity by reducing its availability

Aluminum alleviates manganese toxicity by altering the properties of root cell membranes and cell walls in rice.

HvAACT1 increases Al3+-tolerance in wheat and barley

Genetically modifying barley and wheat to express the barley gene HvAACT1 gene has potential to alleviate the effects of aluminium toxicity in acid soils.

Relationships of aluminium and nitrogen in rice

Acidic soils are characterized by more ammonium and more available (and thus potential toxic) aluminium compared with neutral-to-calcareous soils, which have more nitrate and...

Plants from different climates can react to drought in similar ways

How do plants react when circumstances change? One method can be to evolve a local adaptation. Another can be be phenotypic plasticity,...
