Can electron microscopy techniques provide new insights into the development of primary phloem fibres in hemp?
Functional-structural plant modelling is the key to predicting how plant communities will respond to climate change.
Can fluorescence microscopy be used as a rapid tool to quantitatively assess the phenolic profiles of living plant tissues?
Integrated growth and metabolic models predict the metabolism of rice growth under normal and water-limited conditions.
Models fill in the data gaps to identify genotypes to maximize yield across the NE Australian wheat-belt under climate change.
Gnetales are a puzzle. They look like the closest relatives to angiosperms, the fruiting plants. But when you examine their genes, they appear to be distant. An investigation into the development of their seed coats might explain some of the mystery.
A novel circadian clock model based on real-world clocks delivers simplicity, entrainment, reliability, and accuracy.
Could the exogenous application of melatonin help to improve tolerance to drought stress in crop plants?
Can a better understanding of proteomic responses to low phosphorus conditions be harnessed to improve future soybean varieties?
A review in The Biochemist draws attention to the importance of flower pigments to help plants cope with environmental stresses.
Plant carnivory, at the metabolic level, likely evolved from at least two distinct functions–attraction and defence.
A comparison with wild lentils highlights how gene expression varies when light shifts from red to near infra-red light.
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.
By tracking how cell walls were loosened, a team has been able to show which enzyme is helping fruit ripen.
