It’s not enough to have phosophorus in the soil, plants have to be able to use it. A new study examines how salinity interacts with the ability to take up phosphorus.
Genes candidatos y haplotipos favorables pueden facilitar los esfuerzos de mejoramiento basado en marcadores para mejorar la eficiencia del uso de fósforo en B. napus.
The phylogenetic pattern in phytolith shape was successfully revealed by applying geometric morphometrics to 2D phytolith shape outlines, strengthening the potential of phytoliths to track the evolutionary history and paleoecology of grasses.
Non-cylindrical stems have evolved multiple times within climbing plants and are a common climbing mechanism, aiding the climbers in anchoring to other plants or surfaces in search of light.
This study sheds light on the evolution of two endemic juniper species from the Qinghai–Tibet Plateau and their responses to Quaternary climate fluctuations
Despite the probable extinction of closely related sister species and genera, and the evolution of morphological structures as adaptations to changing environmental conditions, they still share basic reproductive traits with other podocarps.
Botanists used virus-induced gene silencing and gene expression experiments to understand the function of brassinosteroid-related transcription factors in Aquilegia coerulea petal spurs.
Botanists find a way to recycle genomic data and contribute to a better characterization of plant biodiversity.
The spatial pattern of stomata is mainly caused by small-scale epidermal competition.
Candidate genes and favourable haplotypes may facilitate marker-based breeding efforts aimed at improving P use efficiency in B. napus.
Botanists find notable genuine genome size variation of up to 1.3-fold between individuals of the same species.
Arthur de Lima Silva and colleagues present a hypothesis of floral evolution for the family, illustrating a shift from bisexuality to unisexuality and the evolution of nectaries in a complex monocot family, which can contribute to future studies on reproductive biology and floral evolution in other groups.
