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....

Males become female when striped maples take a health hit

Above a certain trauma threshold, male trees had a high probability of becoming female, possibly in a bid to better their chances at reproduction.

Carbon stores support efficient nitrate use during regrowth of perennial ryegrass

Plant regrowth in response to defoliation relies on efficient nitrogen use. Roche et al. find that remobilisation of water soluble carbohydrate stores in leaves...

Effects of elevated atmospheric CO2 concentrations, clipping regimen and differential day/night atmospheric warming on tissue nitrogen concentrations of a perennial pasture grass

Forecasting the effects of climate change on nitrogen (N) cycling in pastures requires an understanding of changes in tissue N. A new study published...

Defoliation, tree growth and storage of C and N

Although lenga beech trees, completely defoliated by caterpillars of Ormiscodes amphimone, do not die, they show reduced growth for at least 2 years.

Trampling, defoliation and physiological integration

Clonal plants are a common feature of heavily grazed ecosystems where large herbivores inflict simultaneous pressures of trampling and defoliation. Xu et al. examine...

Reproduction costs when photosynthate is limited

Reproduction imposes a cost as resources are diverted from other functions within the plant. Ida et al. use both defoliation and shading to reduce photosynthate...

New grapevine model better predicts whole-canopy gas exchange

Models considering only the maximum photosynthetic capacity for all leaves over-estimated net carbon dioxide exchange by nearly a third.

Phylogeny, age and adaptive evolution of genus Allium

The genus Allium L., one of the largest monocotyledonous genera and one that includes many economically important crops with nutritional and medicinal...

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,...
