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,...

How does variation in traits of Tunisian oak seeds affect survival?

Oaks are the dominant species of tree in many Mediterranean forests. However, the climate of the Mediterranean basin is predicted to change...

Stomatal anatomy coordinates leaf size with Rubisco kinetics in Limonium

Stomatal anatomy integrates Rubisco kinetics and leaf size in Limonium species, consistent with selection on functional coordination and shared developmental pathways.

Regulatory effect of phosphorus and nitrogen on nodulation and plant performance of shrubby legumes

The four species showed similar patterns in their absorption and use of phosphorus and nitrogen.

Understanding gene expression under flooding and drought stress in Phalaris arundinacea and Dactylis glomerata

A changing climate could bring drier or wetter conditions. A team of scientists has been examining how the genes of two plants adapt to both conditions.

Root responses in Arundo donax

When soils dry they don't dry uniformly, some parts remain damper than others. How does a reed like Arundo donax respond?

Morphological and physiological traits determine Arundo drought recovery

Arundo donax often reproduces clonally, but a new study finds small differences can affect how it recovers from drought stress.

Drying out defenses: drought reduces tree defense system

Drought stress is becoming increasingly common with climate change, with negative impacts on tree growth and survival. The mechanisms of drought mortality in trees...

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...

Embolism resistance in herbaceous eudicot stems

Plant survival under extreme drought events has been associated with xylem vulnerability to embolism (the disruption of water transport due to air bubbles in...
