These carbon-hoarding, coastline-protecting forests are sponges for greenhouse gases. Doing plantings right and involving local communities are key to saving them.
Can soil seed banks contribute to the success of invasive plant species?
Research shows that patches of flowering plants can provide crucial shade during heatwaves, even in surprisingly small patches.
Hedgerows may provide habitat for forest plants to colonise to travel in Europe’s patchwork woodland.
Invasive species might not always have the upper hand when temperatures rise.
A recent field experiment reveals the nuances of plant responses to climate change.
Blending traditional knowledge and Western science to strategise the battle against climate change
Your daily cup of coffee could be threatened by climate change, but targeted plant breeding may be here to help.
How does drought influence floral traits of Sinapis arvensis and how does this affect visitation by bumblebee pollinators?
Concern that flowers are blooming earlier is about more than wish to return to the good old days.
Cavitation resistance appears to be genetic, making it useful as a predictor of drought resistance.
How does 18 years of experimental warming influence the bryophyte communities of sub-arctic heath and meadow ecosystems of northern Sweden?
The finding bodes well for the survival of Lomas communities in the Atacama Desert under future climate change.
Plants react to a combination of changes in temperature and water availability in different ways.
