Top-up, and bottom-down effects of marine plankton

Members of the plankton are so-called because they don’t have the ability to move against modest currents in the water bodies they inhabit, i.e....

Functional traits of vascular plants colonizing alpine cushions

Global warming threatens species living in the highest and coldest areas. Alpine cushion plants are potentially endangered by stronger species expanding from lower elevations....

A heart(wood)-warming tale of methanogens

Mention of cave-dwelling plants living in extremis brings to mind the real extremophiles of planet Earth, known – unsurprisingly! – as extremophiles. Although...

Root hairs to halt global warming

The secret to conserving an endangered orchid is in the soil

A study of orchids shows the secret to conservation isn't in the plants you can see, but the fungi you can't.

Rock could aid humanity

This excellent news is no surprise to followers of Bill and Ted.

Responses of lichen communities to 18 years of natural and experimental warming

Species richness and effective number of species decreased under experimental warming in meadow environments.

Effect of asymmetric warming on plant invasion

Although many studies have documented the effects of global warming on invasive plants, little is known about whether the effects of warming on plant...

Mitigating effects of well-timed rainfall on plant mortality

Global warming accelerates plant water use, increasing plant susceptibility to drought death. From this, it can be hypothesised that higher CO2 concentrations slow plant...
