When speed is a problem in mangrove restoration

Rapid restoration isn't always the best restoration, when the restoring species is invasive.

Invasive plants’ success may start with invasive pollen

To pollinate you need the right pollen, but what happens when you arrive in new territory everyone you share pollinators with has the wrong pollen?

Origin and genome evolution of Cardamine occulta

For the first time, whole-genome cytogenomic maps were established for octoploid plants.

How do alien pathogens make inroads into native plant networks?

Plant-pathogen networks tend to be modular, with pathogens specialising on specific hosts. What happens when a pathogen arrives from elsewhere?

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...

Trait divergence determines the success of a newly invasive plant

It is often assumed that the ability of plants to acclimatize to the local environment through non-genetic changes in their anatomy and physiology (phenotypic...

Can carnivorous plants control an invasive hornet?

Betteridge's law of headlines states: "Any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no." But some scientists in France have tested Sarracenia to find the answer is more like 'not yet'.

White-Tailed Deer and Invasive Plants

Bambi, heart-warming film or horror flick? The connection between deer and invasive species is complicated.

Benefits of self discrimination in roots

Experiments clearly demonstrated that plants competing with clonal sibling plants invested more in clonal reproduction as compared to plants competing with non-siblings.

The global distribution of bamboos

Bamboos are one of the most economically important plant groups globally, but this worldwide trade creates risks of invasions. In a recent review published in...

Plasticity to drought and ecotypic differentiation in populations of a crop wild relative

Plant functional traits often vary across space, particularly when species encounter contrasting environmental conditions throughout their range. Such phenotypic variation is determined...

Botanists Pull Apart the Genes of Bananas to See How They Came Together

Banana genes reveal how they may have passed through other hybrid stages.

Sympatric moss populations can form true hybrid zones

Hybridization between species has not been considered an important factor in the evolution of mosses. The moss life cycle has led many...
