Heat stress can have transgenerational effects on a plant’s offspring but how important are the timing and frequency of these events?
Is floral senescence synchronized across accessions of Arabidopsis thaliana?
Its correlation with intervessel pit membrane thickness provides the missing functional link.
Identification of traits affecting pollen performance
Whilst studies on Arabidopsis thaliana have generally been highly molecular and/or genetic in nature, most studies using A. halleri have addressed adaptation and variation in adaptive traits in the species’ natural habitat.
Model identifies optimal light conditions to manipulate the circadian clock.
Though the experiment was limited to two genotypes of a single species, these findings support the idea that whole genome duplication can indeed increase plasticity.
Polar auxin transport dynamics control vein patterning.
A model designed to study circadian effects on physiology becomes more broadly useful when the clock regulates metabolites.
A French-US team studied whether Arabidopsis in its natural range varies by latitude or from a core to the periphery.
A new model uncovers the possible mechanisms underlying the robustness of flat leaf production.
Winter annual Arabidopsis ecotypes have a distinct advantage over summer annuals in expected global warming scenarios.
