Timing is everything. For seeds it’s a matter of life or death.
The ability to smell smoke is important if you’re expecting a fire – but some plants have altered how they use this sense to modify how they grow.
How do lentil, faba bean, field pea and grass pea vary in their tolerance to waterlogging, hypoxia and anoxia?
Can soil seed banks contribute to the success of invasive plant species?
Seeds were found to vary from one accession to the next in their cold storage longevity.
What are the effects of genetic and environmental factors on seed heteromorphism and its variations?
Different species fruit sequentially, offering a year-round food resource.
New research shows that marsh plants may be lying in wait in marshes-to-be, waiting for geological processes to catch up.
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.
