Sodium chloride solutions not a good experimental substitute for sea water

Simulating seawater in the lab is more complicated than just getting the salt concentration right.

Climate change threatens the first line of defence against coastal storms

When the storms come in, plants could help secure natural defences. But climate change is giving them problems of their own.

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.

How kelp protects coasts

Some protection from waves crashing on the shore could be found in what lies beneath the surface.

Simulated seawater flooding reduces oilseed rape growth, yield and progeny performance

Of the many threats to global food security, one of the most pressing is the increased incidence of extreme weather events. In addition to...

Plants and flood risk in Annals of Botany

Annals of Botany will have a Special Issue on Vulnerability to, and management of, plant communities in the face of increased flood risk. The increased...

Elevating expression of phytoglobins enhances photosynthetic response of root-flooded maize

Decreased crop photosynthetic rates are a major consequence of root flooding as severe perturbations of the photosynthetic machinery result from elevated levels of reactive...

SPECIAL ISSUE: Plant Responses to Low-Oxygen Environments

AoB PLANTS is pleased to announce the publication of a Special Issue entitled Plant Responses to Low-Oxygen Environments, edited by Michael Jackson (University of Bristol, UK)...

Effects of submergence and de-submergence on a clonal plant

Submergence and de-submergence are common phenomena encountered by riparian plants as water levels fluctuate, but little is known about the role of physiological integration...

Flooding and fragment size interact to determine survival and regrowth after fragmentation in two stoloniferous Trifolium species

Clonal plants are common in frequently flooded habitats because of their resilience to disturbance. In a new study published in AoB PLANTS, Huber et...

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...
