Stomatal anatomy coordinates leaf size with Rubisco kinetics in Limonium

Stomatal anatomy integrates Rubisco kinetics and leaf size in Limonium species, consistent with selection on functional coordination and shared developmental pathways.

Sink-source imbalance and down-regulation of photosynthesis

Sink-source imbalance could cause accumulation of total non-structural carbohydrates (TNC) and down-regulation of photosynthesis. Sugiura et al. investigate how sink-source imbalance causes photosynthetic down-regulation...

Where in the epidermis would you find chloroplasts?

There are several answers to this question. I expect all of you to say guard cells. Those of you who’ve read the previous item...

Effects of environmental factors on dark-adapted photosynthetic induction

Plants grow in a variable environment. While the effects of various environmental factors such as CO2 concentration, temperature, air humidity, and blue light on...

Plant evolution: The inevitability of C4 photosynthesis

C4 photosynthesis may have evolved first to correct an intercellular nitrogen imbalance, and only later evolved a central role in carbon fixation.

Spotlight on macronutrients : Carbon (mainly)

Whilst members of the Plant Kingdom might dominate terrestrial biomes, non-Plant Kingdom members are the major photosynthetic organisms in aquatic habitats

Adaptation of cotton bracts to high CO2

They conclude that cotton bracts provide readily available material for studying adaptations to elevated CO2.

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...
