Stomatal anatomy coordinates leaf size with Rubisco kinetics in Limonium

Stomatal anatomy integrates Rubisco kinetics and leaf size in Limonium species, consistent with selection on functional coordination and shared developmental pathways.

Structural and functional responses of coffee trees to elevated [CO2]

Air tends to increase due to climate changes, affecting plant growth. Field-grown Coffea arabica trees were grown under actual and elevated for four years. Rakocevic et...

Designing oil palm architectural ideotypes for optimized light interception

Enhancement of light harvesting in annual crops has successfully led to yield increase and has been achieved by selecting plants with optimal canopy architecture...

Tree seedling growth capacity under climate change

Predicting the effects of climate change on tree species and communities is critical for understanding the future state of our forested ecosystems. In a...

Shoot development in alfalfa plants competing for light

Developmental processes control plant and crop leaf area expansion in alfalfa and differ in their response to light competition intensity.

Junior science: that shrinking feeling…

We often bemoan the fact that we know neither whither nor whence will come the next generation of plant scientists (e.g. Sinéad Drea). Well,...

Modelling lengths of cucumber internodes

Light has tremendous effects on crop architecture and its quantity and quality affect internode lengths in cucumber (Cucumis sativus). Kahlen and Stützel make simplifications...

Complex interplay of responses when plants experience canopy shading

Plants react to both decreased red:far red ratio and decreased photosynthetically active radiation, and in different ways.

Simulated Herbivory Leads Grasses to Pass Fungal Symbionts to Their Offspring

Many grasses host symbiotic fungi, Epichloë spp. These fungi can help grasses tolerate herbivory, or help repel herbivores. But how do these...
