A close-up view of Cardmine hirsuta’s flight jacket

Being rooted, plants have very little opportunity to travel. They can as pollen to find a mate, and also as seeds. In...

Delayed aluminium exclusion in signal grass is energy-dependent

The mechanism requires a day or two from exposure to exclude the metal from the intracellular compartment.

Composition and physicochemical properties of outer mucilage from seeds of Arabidopsis natural accessions

Poulain et al. present a dataset describing six traits for polysaccharides extracted from the outer mucilage for 306 natural Arabidopsis thaliana accessions.

Arabinogalactan proteins (AGPs) and pectins in apple fruits during postharvest storage

Changes in the arrangement of cell wall components determine cell wall properties (integrity, stiffness), thereby affecting the macro properties of fruits, which are important...

ARP2/3 complex links cell wall assembly and auxin distribution

The protein complex ARP2/3 is responsible for nucleating actin, and its loss results in multiple defects in young seedlings of Arabidopsis thaliana. Sahi et...

Creative Destruction: How Death Leads to Function

Marcos Buckeridge explains how death and destruction in sugarcane roots can lead to the development of gas spaces, which improve root function.

Ethylene affects cell wall remobilisation

Seeking to uncover the effects of ethylene on the metabolic process and pectin remobilising capacity of rice (Oryza sativa) that is grown in phosphorus...

Adapting to life on land

This study examines pectins to understand the changes in cell wall structure associated with the transition from algae to land-plants.

Celebrating basic plant science

A new series of blog posts aims to present vignettes of current plant science research within a broader remit of promoting the importance of plant science.

How does the vital interaction between pollen and pistil work?

How, in molecular terms, does the vital interaction between pollen pollen and pistil work?

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...
