Heat during flowering damages the kernels before they develop.
Stress memories using epigenetics are helping plants adapt to climate change.
Botanical gardens provide access to vital plants and water for butterflies in the southwest US. This will only become more important as the climate becomes warmer and drier.
Botanists found evidence for the effects of climate change stored in herbaria.
Botanists have found a bodyguard that can protect blueberry plants from cold or drought shocks – but instead of protecting the outside of the plant, it lives inside it.
An earlier spring changes the growing conditions for trees, and not always for the better.
Often archaeologists will examine differences in vegetation to gain information on buried sites. Now, some botanists have reversed this and are using archaeological sites to learn about the effect of nutrient differences on plants.
A successful plant model has now been parameterized to include soybean growth under elevated CO2.
A common claim is that rising carbon dioxide is actually good for plants. Research from Sweden shows that reality is more complicated.
Integrating plant functioning at organ scale can simulate the phenotypic plasticity of plants.
A combination of morphological and physiological traits contribute to drought mortality, along with responses to night warming.
It depends on whether or not it’s a good picture book about plants.
Climate change is about more than simply warming, and these other effects should not be overlooked.
Rising temperatures and decreasing levels of precipitation can magnify the invasive potential of this South African plant that has already taken over temperate coasts around the world.
