Botanists use the orchid genus Epipactis as a model for speciation, but unravelling its family tree has been difficult.
MuSCA reveals that the topological scale has a major influence on the simulation of carbon allocation.
A lichen is not one organism, but a community of at least two. If that’s the case, how does the lichen as a whole reproduce?
The Aspleniaceae is a family of ferns, some of which are terrestrial and some of which are epiphytes. A new study has found a rarity, a hemiepiphyte.
New research shows that it’s the parts of the plants you don’t see that help preserve dunes from erosion.
What happens when cyclones hit mangroves? What happens when there are repeated impacts? Ken Krauss and Michael Osland have been looking at the scientific research to find out.
Bending rose stems dramatically increases photosynthesis.
The longer a plant waits to self-pollinate, the longer it has to attract pollen from outside. But waiting too long can have consequences.
Overexpression of PtHMGR enhanced the stress resistance of poplar.
Botanists have tried to understand the conditions that led to the evolution of the first flowers by reconstructing the niches from which the earliest flowering plants diverged.
Doubling the chromosomes of Arabidopsis arenosa does not always lead to strong ecological niche differentiation.
The deadly carrot might sound as likely as the killer tomato, but decoding the defences of Thapsia garganica might have a big pay-off in the future.
For the first time, whole-genome cytogenomic maps were established for octoploid plants.
