Botanists explore how mint makes a home for ants and mites

Domatia in a member of the mint family are caused by cell proliferation, not leaf rolling

Simulating ephemeral seagrass growth

Ephemeral seagrasses provide important marine habitats, but are under threat due to human activity. Whitehead et al. develop a new functional-structural environmentally dependant model,...

Plant anatomy goes back to its roots (stems, leaves…)

Does "Essentials of Developmental Plant Anatomy" cover the essentials of developmental plant anatomy? Nigel Chaffey looks over the introductory textbook.

Cherry fruit developmental analysis

Evaluating genetic and environmental effects upon sweet cherry cultivars differing in seasonal duration and fruit size, Gibeau et al. employ photographic measurements to apply...

The fundamental elements of plant construction *

The recent confirmation of the names of four new chemical elements is a tribute to the creative powers of humankind. It also shows how...

Pollination drop proteins and ovule transcripts of Cephalotaxus

Many gymnosperms produce an ovular secretion, the pollination drop, during reproduction. The drops serve as a landing site for pollen, but also contain a...

Vascular patterning of superoxide in bursting grapevine buds

Plants regulate cellular oxygen partial pressures (pO2), together with reduction/oxidation (redox) state in order to manage rapid developmental transitions such as bud burst after...

Regulation of ROS and RNS in pepper seedlings

The development of seedlings involves many morphological, physiological and biochemical processes, which are controlled by many factors. Some reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS...
