A study of the genetic diversity of Miscanthus sacchariflorus has revealed that the centre of its diversity now lies under the Yellow Sea.
While collecting plant material for crop breeding, a team from Aberystwyth University also thought hard about the human side of their work.
Arundo donax often reproduces clonally, but a new study finds small differences can affect how it recovers from drought stress.
A problem with growing biofuels is that they can take land needed for food. What happens when you start growing biofuels on marginal land where food crops are not possible?
Marcos Buckeridge explains how death and destruction in sugarcane roots can lead to the development of gas spaces, which improve root function.
Genomics, Phenomics, Stress Tolerance and Emerging Modelling Approaches
Miscanthus ornamental cultivars originate almost exclusively from southern Japan, & many marketed as M. sinensis have hybrid ancestry from M. sacchariflorus
The bioenergy grass Miscanthus × giganteus exhibits a superior tolerance to chilling shock compared with the other genotypes.
