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....

Effect of simulated warming on Leymus chinensis grasslands of northeast China

Mean global temperatures have risen by almost 1°C since 1850 and are predicted to continue to rise through to the end of...

Relationship between duration of cell differentiation and xylem traits

Secondary growth is a process related to the formation of new cells that increase in size and wall thickness during xylogenesis. Temporal dynamics of...

Tree root dynamics in mountain forests

Mountain forests are important ecosystems subject to extreme climate conditions. Soil buffers root systems against variations in the weather, but we know little of...

Fueling the fire – how is stem growth respiration linked to stem growth?

Understanding how forests grow and how they metabolize carbon is crucial to ecosystem carbon flux, feedbacks between vegetation and climate, and the forestry. However,...

Simulating ephemeral seagrass growth

Ephemeral seagrasses provide important marine habitats, but are under threat due to human activity. Whitehead et al. develop a new functional-structural environmentally dependant model,...

New insights into the biology of high-latitude Mesozoic trees

The presence in the specimens of both epicormic shoots and traumatic growth zones, combined with the observation of some disorientation of the wood structure in some parts of the trunks, suggest that these trees were growing under more stressful conditions than previously described trees from the Fremouw Formation.

Cherry fruit developmental analysis

Evaluating genetic and environmental effects upon sweet cherry cultivars differing in seasonal duration and fruit size, Gibeau et al. employ photographic measurements to apply...

Within-species populations exhibit similar physiology under current climate but may diverge under warmer and drier conditions

Recent repeated episodes of drought and high temperatures have resulted in substantial dieback of silver fir in the Spanish Pyrenees. However, mortality has been...

Effects of a native parasitic plant on an exotic invader decrease with increasing host age

Infection by parasitic plants has been considered as an effective method for controlling invasive plants because the parasites partially or completely absorb water, nutrients,...

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,...
