Thermal Ecology to become a hot topic

We might think of flowers in terms of their colour and scent, but what about their temperature? A new review in Annals of Botany...

Conserved thermal performance curves across the geographic range of a gametophytic fern

Species-level responses to environmental change depend on the collective responses of their constituent populations and the degree to which these populations are specialized to...

Seed dormancy regulates germination response to smoke and temperature in a rhizomatous evergreen perennial

Seed dormancy status regulates the response of seeds to environmental cues that can trigger germination. Anigozanthos flavidus (Haemodoraceae) produces seeds with morphophysiological dormancy that are...

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....

Thresholds for the onset of xylogenesis in juniper

A mismatch between the thresholds of temperature and moisture for the onset of xylogenesis may increase forest vulnerability in semi-arid areas under forecasted warmer and drier conditions.

Thermal acclimation of photosynthesis and dark respiration in white spruce

The results showed moderate thermal acclimation of respiration and no evidence for thermal acclimation of photosynthesis or local genetic adaptation for traits related to thermal acclimation.

Grass florets bet-hedge against unpredictable rainfall in arid landscapes

Seed germination in the arid zone is a high-risk event. For grasses specifically, the ancillary bracts of the floret surrounding the seed have been...

Fusarium wilt of cucumber plants is not caused by water shortage

Although leaf wilt occurred in both water stress and FOC infection, the physiological responses were different, especially in leaf spatial distribution.

Snow addition and warming impacts on arctic leaf anatomy and gas exchange

Climatic changes can result in modified leaf anatomy and gas exchange in arctic plants. In a one-year-old field experiment in Greenland, Schollert et al....

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...

What creates Gentiana diversity in mountains?

The Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) is extremely rich in species, but why? One recent explanation is the mountain‐geobiodiversity hypothesis (MGH) by Mosbrugger et...

Modelling Three-Dimensional Leaf Shape Variation

L-Cucumber’s leaf prototype mimics leaf shape of stressed plants.

How does variation in traits of Tunisian oak seeds affect survival?

Oaks are the dominant species of tree in many Mediterranean forests. However, the climate of the Mediterranean basin is predicted to change...

How Important Is Leaf Realism in Functional-Structural Plant Modelling?

Making a realistic plant in a computer model is possible, but is it necessary. All the computations generating the plant slow down...
