The 31st International Conference on Arabidopsis Research (ICAR) Arabidopsis as a nexus for Discovery,...

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...

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...

A new molecular mechanism reveals how plants keep their cool

How do plants adjust their body plan to cope with high-temperature stress?

Hornwort stomata walls are not built for movement

Guard cell walls are built to resist bending and deformation to open and close the pore. Pectins provide flexibility and resilience to walls; in...

Abscisic acid inhibits hypocotyl elongation acting on gibberellins, DELLA proteins and auxin

Hypocotyl elongation of Arabidopsis seedlings is influenced by light and numerous growth factors. Light inhibits hypocotyl elongation (photomorphogenesis), whereas elongation is promoted in the dark...

Regulation of anisotropic cell elongation in Arabidopsis

If a plant wants to grow, it needs reliable anisotropic cell elongation*. Getting the cells to elongate has a couple of constraints. There is...

Subtle variation in shade avoidance responses has profound consequences for plant competitiveness

There is limited knowledge on how variation in plastic responses plays a role in determining plant competitiveness. To address this issue, Bongers et al....

The autonomous flowering-time pathway pleiotropically regulates seed germination

Despite some degree of functional divergence between the regulation of flowering and germination by autonomous-pathway genes, the autonomous pathway is highly functionally conserved across life stages.

ePlant: A Comprehensive Data Visualization Tool for Plant Biologists

The advent and breadth of bioinformatics resources have made scientist’s jobs easier. Before jumping into wet lab work, they are able to parse gene...

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,...

Not All Pine Needles Are Identical: Lower Crown Loss in Pinus radiata

When fungal infection comes to Pinus radiata, it can run through the bottom of the crown of the tree, removing its leaves....

How do you get more DNA down a pollen tube?

A common event for flowering plants is whole genome duplication (WGD), where a plant gets extra chromosomes. It’s often studied in mature...

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...
