Plants have no opportunity to get out of the sun into the shade, so how do they avoid damage by UV-B light? The answer lies in the cuticle, the outermost layer of a plant.
Analysis of 31 tropical woody species with spines on their trunk has uncovered new explanations for the presence of spines on trees.
In the future, some plants may wear monitors to keep track of water loss.
Botanists found evidence for the effects of climate change stored in herbaria.
Botanists have found a bodyguard that can protect blueberry plants from cold or drought shocks – but instead of protecting the outside of the plant, it lives inside it.
What’s behind the patterns of plant distribution, and are there any common features of rare plants? A team of botanists has been reviewing articles to find out.

Not only do bacteria have tools to try to shut down plant defences, pathogens can also try to get the plant to direct water and food to help feed the attack.
A Scandinavian team have examined how climate change will affect nutrient availability for shrubs and found a surprising result.
We’ve examined where people struggled with applications, the last time we had an editor post open. Here are some tips for what we are looking for.
