Parallel functional differentiation of an invasive annual plant on two continents

Broadly distributed species encompass populations spread across habitats that vary in their climatic, edaphic and biotic environmental characteristics. The success of broadly distributed species...

Quantifying temporal change in plant population attributes: insights from a resurrection approach

Plant populations vary over time as a result of the effects of environmental variation on life-cycle traits and genetic diversity. It is important to...

When is it your time to bloom? For a plant, it’s HISTONE DEACETYLASE 19 and FD that decides

A shoot shouldn't become a flower too early, but needs some control over when the process happens. A paper in JXB finds the genes responsible.

The autonomous flowering-time pathway pleiotropically regulates seed germination

Despite some degree of functional divergence between the regulation of flowering and germination by autonomous-pathway genes, the autonomous pathway is highly functionally conserved across life stages.

Using dormant twigs to investigate climate change (Viewpoint)

Climate change has altered the spring phenology of many temperate plants, with important ecological consequences. However, studies of phenological shifts are generally restricted to...

Temporal variation in gender in an annual plant

The widespread tendency towards declining fruit set from first to last flowers on plants may contribute to temporal variation in allocation optima.

Selection on a CONSTANS-like gene between two red oaks

Oaks can provide a model to study hybridization as they often maintain species integrity and distinct environmental adaptations despite recurrent gene flow. Lind-Riehl et...

Variation of genes responsible for maturity loci in soybean

This study's results suggest the existence of unidentified genes for flowering in soybean.

Flowering time control by miR159 in gloxinia

Gloxinia (Sinningia speciosa) is a popular ornamental plant with attractive, colourful flowers, but the genetic mechanisms that regulate flowering are largely unknown. Li et...

Co-adaptation of seed dormancy and flowering time

Time from seed dispersal to germination and time from germination to flowering are two key life history traits that determine fitness and coexistence of...

Changes in How a Plant Breathes Aren’t Always Matched by Changes in Its Anatomy

You can't predict how a Yucca gloriosa will react to drought from its anatomy alone.

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,...
