Puzzles in Moss Genome Evolution

Some plants have pairs of chromosomes, they’re diploid organisms like us. Other plants have more than two copies of chromosomes, they’re polyploid....

Aquilegia performs better in soils influenced by distant relatives

Growing evidence suggests that plant–soil interactions have important implications for plant community composition. However, the role of phylogenetic relatedness in governing interactions between plants...

Disturbance by a native fossorial rodent favours plant invasion in arid shrubland

Disturbance events, such as cattle grazing or human activities, remove plant individuals and thereby create opportunities for non-native plants to colonise the community. Disturbance...

Plants with similar colours attract different pollinators

Different pollinator groups (bees, ants, wasps, flies, beetles and butterflies) preferentially visit flowers of certain colours. Interestingly, these colour preferences match the predictions of...

Introduced and invasive cactus species–a global review

Understanding which species are introduced and become invasive are central questions in invasion science. In this sense, the cactus family is an interesting case...

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...

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.
