There’s more to seed survival than just seed mass.
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.
Studying how bees perceive flowers gives insight into how pollinators have influenced flower evolution.
Can new genomics approaches be used to assess and understand intraspecific diversity across large geographic distributions?
Sorbus is a highly diverse tree genus but is this the result of hybridisation and introgression between native and foreign species?
Darwin may indeed not have been referring to angiosperms broadly in his famous words to his friend.
A disagreement on when flowers evolved could be solved by studying the real experts on pollination, the pollinators.
Genes for carnivory arose from a duplication of the genome turning plants into hunters.
Why would a plant not frequently exposed to fire evolve to burn well?
Stomatal anatomy integrates Rubisco kinetics and leaf size in Limonium species, consistent with selection on functional coordination and shared developmental pathways.
Carnivorous plants need to manufacture a variety of specialised chemicals to lure, trap and digest prey.
Dong et al. identify and characterise the cassava TLP gene family, MeTLP, at the genomic level.
…as in not tall, rather than apocalyptic.
