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...

How do marshes migrate?

New research shows that marsh plants may be lying in wait in marshes-to-be, waiting for geological processes to catch up.

Integration between developmental pathways during reserve mobilization in palm seeds

Palm seeds are interesting models for studying seed reserve mobilization at the tissue level due to the abundance and complexity of reserves stored in...

Within- and trans-generational plasticity: seed germination responses to light quantity and quality

Plants respond not only to the environment in which they find themselves, but also to that of their parents. The combination of within- and...

Intra-specific facilitation promotes the recruitment of a desert shrub

In stressful environments, nurse elements, such as shrubs or rocks, facilitate plant recruitment by providing less severe environments for seed germination and seedling survival....

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.

Plant records: Can a plant be too trusting?

Name: Orchids Scientific name: Family: Orchidaceae Known for: Beauty, epiphytism, providing vanilla flavouring, tiny seeds, mycorrhizae, deceptive pollination, mycoheterotrophy, medicinal usage, vegetating Krakatoa… Record broken: The world’s...

Effects of warming and N addition on seedling establishment in tundra

Climate change is expected to cause (sub)arctic plant species to move polewards to track their climatic niche. However, rapid migration requires recruitment from seed,...

Reciprocal sowing experiment shows local adaptation and phenotypic plasticity

Reciprocal sowing experiments along environmental gradients allow evaluating local adaptation and phenotypic plasticity as in situ mechanisms to cope with climate change. Sánchez et...

Antibiotics impact plant traits

Antibiotics used in the livestock industry are released to agricultural fields via grazing animals and manure. From there, they may affect human health due...

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,...

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....

How do you get more DNA down a pollen tube?

A common event for flowering plants is whole genome duplication (WGD), where a plant gets extra chromosomes. It’s often studied in mature...

Simulating the effects of local adaptation and life history on the ability of plants to track climate shifts

Local adaptation is common but not universal in plants and results from the interplay of gene flow with natural selection. Gene flow...
