Scientists have identified one of the earliest multicellular algae. Their new method could help unlock much more information from Precambrian fossils.
Integrating plant functioning at organ scale can simulate the phenotypic plasticity of plants.
Botanists find it’s easier to find the gene to cope with a problem if you carry more copies of genes.
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.
This study sheds light on the evolution of two endemic juniper species from the Qinghai–Tibet Plateau and their responses to Quaternary climate fluctuations
Botanists used virus-induced gene silencing and gene expression experiments to understand the function of brassinosteroid-related transcription factors in Aquilegia coerulea petal spurs.
Polar auxin transport dynamics control vein patterning.
Botanists find a way to recycle genomic data and contribute to a better characterization of plant biodiversity.
Botanists find notable genuine genome size variation of up to 1.3-fold between individuals of the same species.
Some of the problems that limit the number of species in the Arctic might also contribute to creating new species.
Both Van Gogh and Nature like to use sulphur-derived pigments for flowers, but what happens when there’s not enough sulphur?
The ugly duckling of corn may hold the key to having better grains in the future.
Botanists demonstrate a novel, effective approach to allele discovery in diverse accessions using a draft reference genome from a single species.
Recalibrating models using absolute – instead of relative – mass units makes it possible to test modelled transcription rates against biochemical data.
