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.

Seedling responses to salinity of 26 Neotropical tree species

How will coastal ecosystems change when some seedling can tolerate rising tides, and others cannot?

Drought tolerance strategies of conifer species in the northwestern US

As trees photosynthesize, using carbon from the atmosphere to grow and store energy, they also lose water to the air (transpire). During...

Root responses in Arundo donax

When soils dry they don't dry uniformly, some parts remain damper than others. How does a reed like Arundo donax respond?

Stomatal conductance and elevated CO2

Studies have indicated that plant stomatal conductance (gs) decreases in response to elevated atmospheric CO2, a phenomenon of significance for the global hydrological cycle....

Structural and functional responses of coffee trees to elevated [CO2]

Air tends to increase due to climate changes, affecting plant growth. Field-grown Coffea arabica trees were grown under actual and elevated for four years. Rakocevic et...

Maize nutrient uptake and photosynthesis in intercropping

Maize and wheat are globally important food crops. The two species can be grown as an intercrop, with substantial land sparing in the order...

GrapevineXL: a model coupling plant water transport and leaf gas exchange

Quantifying the response of plant water status to environmental conditions and its effect on carbon acquisition are essential for simulating plant growth and fruit...

Photosynthetic plasticity and survival across the Triassic-Jurassic boundary

Why did Gingko almost disappear during the Triassic–Jurassic mass extinction when ferns did so well? The answer has relevance for future atmospheric changes.

Predicting habitat affinities with drought tolerance traits in herbaceous dicots

Soil water availability is an important mechanism filtering plant species. Twenty-five herbaceous dicot species were grown under controlled conditions in order to measure a...
