Hypernodulating soybean mutant line nod4 lacking ‘Autoregulation of Nodulation’ has limited root-to-shoot water transport capacity

Although hypernodulating phenotype mutants of legumes, such as soybean, possess a high leaf N content, the large number of root nodules decreases carbohydrate availability...

A generic individual-based model (IBM) tool to disentangle plant interactions in forage legumes

Louarn and Faverjon develop a generic model to account for the growth and development of herbaceous legume species with contrasting above- and below-ground architectures....

Effects of plant polyploidy on the legume-rhizobia mutualism

Polyploidy alters plant genomes, phenotypes, and abiotic interactions. The effects of polyploidy on plant-biotic interactions however are less well known. One important plant-biotic interaction is...

Evolution and structural diversification of Nictaba-like lectin genes in food crops

Lectins are an inherent component of plant immunity systems. Van Holle et al. study the occurrence and evolution of the family of Nictaba-like lectin...

Illuminating the mesocosm…

Constant light sources during the night have profound consequences on aphid populations in grassland ecosystems

Novel lineage-specific inversion and legume plastome evolution

Martin et al. sequence the plastome of Lupinus luteus, representing the Genistoid lineage, and perform comparative analyses at the structural and sequence levels.

Matching roots to their environment (Special Issue)

How the roots of land plants evolved, how root ecology affects the utilization of soil resources, and the influence of plant roots on biogeochemical cycles.

Conservative shoot P content under varying supply

The Australian legume Viminaria juncea forms both cluster roots and mycorrhizal associations. de Campos et al. manipulate P supply over a range of 0 to...

Putative phytological pugilism (probably…) [or, One species – two genomes?]

In the genteel world of botany, one may be surprised to discover that – occasionally! – disagreements can arise, and that tempers can get...

Floral biomechanics and pollination in Fabaceae

Papilionoid Fabaceae include species with flowers that have obstacles that have to be actively moved by a visitor before floral rewards can be accessed and pollination...

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,...
