Wang and colleagues review the relationships between key phytohormone classes and cellulose deposition in plant systems.
Strigolactones are interesting phytohormones in their own right, but Luke Omoarelojie and colleagues say we should be looking at cross-talk with other hormones too.
Over Christmas, a couple of papers came out that suggest plants can respond to airborne sound waves. The findings challenge many ideas about how plants respond to sound.
Root cortical senescence (RCS) is a poorly understood phenomenon with implications for adaptation to edaphic stress. Schneider et al. demonstrate that ethylene modulates RCS.
Plant melatonin appears to be a multi-regulatory molecule, similar to those observed in animals, with many specific functions in plant physiology.
Mimicking the proximity of neighbouring plants using a supplemental far-red light treatment on plants.
Results suggest that ethylene is perceived in all maize root tissues and cortical-cell-specific PCD is controlled downstream of ethylene perception.
Results suggest that sediment seed banks may represent a significant driver of species persistence in these ecosystems.
