Stress memories using epigenetics are helping plants adapt to climate change.
Plants might not feel pain as such, but they need a way to get damage signals around their body. A new study uncovers some of the process.
Blocking the biosynthesis of canonical strigolactones by TIS108, a specific enzyme inhibitor, significantly lowered Striga infestation without affecting rice growth.
A study of Paspalum species native to South America shows that while clones can expand a plant’s range, the method a parent uses to clone itself will impact how the population develops.

Plants regularly have unprotected sex. How do they avoid unwanted infections?
New research from the Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Biology finds evidence of ‘genetic imprinting’ in a non-vascular plant for the first time.
Bioengineering boosts photosynthesis and increases yields in food crops for the first time ever.
A model designed to study circadian effects on physiology becomes more broadly useful when the clock regulates metabolites.
Light you cannot see, in the infrared part of the spectrum, is surprisingly important for plant photosynthesis.
