Heat stress can have transgenerational effects on a plant’s offspring but how important are the timing and frequency of these events?
Can shifts in trait values among populations of an invasive plant help assess invasion risks and predict future spread?
Doubling the chromosomes of Arabidopsis arenosa does not always lead to strong ecological niche differentiation.
A new paper in Science highlights how variation in an environment can mean plants have no single solution for survival. Where conditions change, genetic diversity can be the best option for a species.
Where will the genes to improve biofuels come from? Jack Bailey-Bale looks ahead to the Generating, capturing and utilising genetic variation session at Bioenergy Genomics 2017.
