Sink-source imbalance and down-regulation of photosynthesis

Sink-source imbalance could cause accumulation of total non-structural carbohydrates (TNC) and down-regulation of photosynthesis. Sugiura et al. investigate how sink-source imbalance causes photosynthetic down-regulation...

Intraspecific variation in soy across the leaf economics spectrum

Leaf economics traits are central in understanding and predicting the effects of plant biodiversity on ecosystem functioning. Using soybean (Glycine max) – one of...

Trait coordination and structural variation in Amborella trichopoda

Finding that Amborella trichopoda is sister to the rest of the angiosperms has raised the question of whether it shares certain key functional trait...

Leaf density contributes the major variation of leaf mass per area in rice

Understanding the variation of leaf anatomy and its influence on photosynthesis is very important for yield improvement. Xiong et al. found that leaf mass per...

Leaf traits and disease tolerance in Dutch elm hybrids

Ophiostoma novo-ulmi, the causative agent of Dutch elm disease (DED), is able to colonize remote areas in infected plants of Ulmus such as the leaf...

Photosynthetic thermotolerance and leaf traits

Little is known about photosynthetic thermotolerance (PT) of tropical and sub-tropical wild plants and its association with leaf phenology and persistence. Zhang et al. use...

X-ray dose limits for microscopy lower than we thought

Subtle damage to hydrated tissue occurs at a far lower dosage than previously thought, and may be difficult to recognize.

Habitat partitioning through reproductive interference in Geranium

We’re familiar with seeing insects flit from one flower to the next, carrying pollen as they do so. What happens when they...

Improving overyielding in legume-based mixtures

A major challenge when supporting the development of intercropping systems remains the design of efficient species mixtures. The ecological processes that sustain...

The Oaks of the North Are Unexpectedly Well-Defended

Normally you would expect plant defences to increase, the closer you get to the equator. This is where insect life is more...
