Regulatory effect of phosphorus and nitrogen on nodulation and plant performance of shrubby legumes

The four species showed similar patterns in their absorption and use of phosphorus and nitrogen.

Mutualistic relationship between mangrove plants and diazotrophs

Trees need nitrogen. When they shed leaves with all the nitrogen in them it would be a big loss, were it not...

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...

Is auxin behind adventitious root formation in petunia cuttings?

Yes, but you'll need nitrogen and somewhere dark.

How important is meat to a curious carnivorous plant?

Drosophyllum lusitanicum, also known as the Portuguese sundew or dewy pine, is unusual even for carnivorous plants in that it lives in dry environments. Typically, carnivorous plants live in nutrient-poor wetlands, so does it really gain much from carnivory?

Ecophysiology of early lineage vascular plants

Tropical understory communities are highly diverse, and plants in these environments must optimize functional traits to ensure ecological and evolutionary success. Campany et al....

The modelling, allocation and redistribution of biomass

Evaluation of a generic biomass partitioning model demonstrates accurate temporal patterns of biomass and nitrogen partitioning.

Investigating the diet of carnivorous plants

Earlier this year we reported on how it looked like bladderworts were farming their food, as much as hunting it. A paper submitted before those came out adds to the story, by examining the 'trophic level' of bladderwort and butterwort prey.

FSPM-based investigation of plant interactions in complex wheat canopies

Functional–structural plant models (FSPMs) explicitly describe individual plant architecture, making this approach suitable for unravelling plant–plant interactions in complex canopies. Barillot et al. developed...

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...

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,...

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....

How do you get more DNA down a pollen tube?

A common event for flowering plants is whole genome duplication (WGD), where a plant gets extra chromosomes. It’s often studied in mature...

Simulating the effects of local adaptation and life history on the ability of plants to track climate shifts

Local adaptation is common but not universal in plants and results from the interplay of gene flow with natural selection. Gene flow...
