How does the evolution of herbicide resistance relate to plant physiology? A new paper in AoB PLANTS suggests a few ways to find out.

Warming reduces stress in Antarctic moss

In moss-dominated regions of the Western Antarctic Peninsula, dramatic climate features have profoundly impacted moss biology and terrestrial ecology. In a study focused on...

Variation in outcrossing and photosynthetic rates in Clarkia reveals independent evolutionary transitions

Adaptive hypotheses to explain the evolution of self-fertilisation in plants are well-characterised, but alternative evolutionary pathways are underexplored. The mating systems and photosynthetic rates...
