How do climatic cues influence flowering time in natural populations of wild radish in northern and southern Japan?
A comparison with wild lentils highlights how gene expression varies when light shifts from red to near infra-red light.
Allochrony is one of few ways for wind-pollinated species to achieve reproductive isolation.
Winter annual Arabidopsis ecotypes have a distinct advantage over summer annuals in expected global warming scenarios.
The variation of montane environments means that the genetics of alpine goldenrods populations differ more than their lowland cousins.
A shoot shouldn’t become a flower too early, but needs some control over when the process happens. A paper in JXB finds the genes responsible.
Despite some degree of functional divergence between the regulation of flowering and germination by autonomous-pathway genes, the autonomous pathway is highly functionally conserved across life stages.
The widespread tendency towards declining fruit set from first to last flowers on plants may contribute to temporal variation in allocation optima.
This study’s results suggest the existence of unidentified genes for flowering in soybean.
