Interactive effects of prolonged drought and warming on plant growth and chemistry

Future shifts in precipitation regimes and temperature are expected to affect plant traits dramatically. To date, many studies have explored the effects of acute...

The potential for phenological mismatch between a perennial herb and its ground-nesting bee pollinator

Flowering time is shifting with climate change. Pollinators may respond differently to changes in temperature and moisture than the flowers they visit, resulting in...

Seed dormancy changes of snowbed species under climate warming

Parental plant growth environment could alter the state of seed dormancy, affecting the timing of emergence and seedling survival. In the context of climate...

Within-species populations exhibit similar physiology under current climate but may diverge under warmer and drier conditions

Recent repeated episodes of drought and high temperatures have resulted in substantial dieback of silver fir in the Spanish Pyrenees. However, mortality has been...

Warming and nitrogen effects on plant phenology

Phenology is one of most sensitive traits of plants in response to regional climate warming and it may interact with other environmental change factors...

X-ray dose limits for microscopy lower than we thought

Subtle damage to hydrated tissue occurs at a far lower dosage than previously thought, and may be difficult to recognize.

Habitat partitioning through reproductive interference in Geranium

We’re familiar with seeing insects flit from one flower to the next, carrying pollen as they do so. What happens when they...

Improving overyielding in legume-based mixtures

A major challenge when supporting the development of intercropping systems remains the design of efficient species mixtures. The ecological processes that sustain...

The Oaks of the North Are Unexpectedly Well-Defended

Normally you would expect plant defences to increase, the closer you get to the equator. This is where insect life is more...
