In the prairies of Minnesota, Liatris aspera is almost a real-life phoenix
A 19th century idea of how grass grows has proven more accurate than later ideas, according to new research.
Can high-resolution imaging and computational processing be used to quantify variation in photomorphogenesis among Arabidopsis seedlings?
A new study compares the accuracy of carbohydrate allocation and transport models for grapevine.
Researchers compare trade-offs between simplicity and accuracy when modelling greenhouse cucumber canopies.
Non-cylindrical stems have evolved multiple times within climbing plants and are a common climbing mechanism, aiding the climbers in anchoring to other plants or surfaces in search of light.
Despite the probable extinction of closely related sister species and genera, and the evolution of morphological structures as adaptations to changing environmental conditions, they still share basic reproductive traits with other podocarps.
Polar auxin transport dynamics control vein patterning.
The spatial pattern of stomata is mainly caused by small-scale epidermal competition.
Candidate genes and favourable haplotypes may facilitate marker-based breeding efforts aimed at improving P use efficiency in B. napus.
Arthur de Lima Silva and colleagues present a hypothesis of floral evolution for the family, illustrating a shift from bisexuality to unisexuality and the evolution of nectaries in a complex monocot family, which can contribute to future studies on reproductive biology and floral evolution in other groups.
How do lentil, faba bean, field pea and grass pea vary in their tolerance to waterlogging, hypoxia and anoxia?
Have you ever found it tricky to get some seeds to germinate? You might have wondered if it was the water, or the temperature, or the soil, or perhaps the seeds themselves that are the problem?
A new perennial fruit crop accurately depicts phenology, light interception, carbohydrate allocation and reserve dynamics, and yield components.
