Mitochondria and stress signalling

How does a plant sense stress and pass those signals around its body? Corentin Dourmap and colleagues have reviewed the role of...

Salicylic acid-independent responses in PI4K mutants

Arabidopsis thaliana is the lab rat of plant sciences. Mutants tweaked in certain genes can show the effects of hormones on plants, but it...

Silicon: the underappreciated plant nutrient

What nutrients do you consider to be important to a plant? What do plants need to be successful, to grow, photosynthesise, develop and defend...

Gene expression in Musa acuminata during interactions with Meloidogyne incognita

Root-knot nematodes (RKN) (Meloidogyne spp) cause considerable losses in banana (Musa sp.). Castañeda et al. investigate the root transcriptome in Musa acuminata during compatible...

Resistance responses triggered by Fusarium crown rot in wheat

Fusarium diseases of cereals constitute economically significant constraints in cereal production systems. In this study, transcriptomic analysis using RNA-seq is combined with metabolite analysis...

Auxin, environmental signals and root development (free review article)

Understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in auxin–environment interactions can assist development of crops better adapted to stressful environments.

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...
