Botanists found evidence for the effects of climate change stored in herbaria.
An earlier spring changes the growing conditions for trees, and not always for the better.
A new perennial fruit crop accurately depicts phenology, light interception, carbohydrate allocation and reserve dynamics, and yield components.
Though the experiment was limited to two genotypes of a single species, these findings support the idea that whole genome duplication can indeed increase plasticity.
Thoreau’s last manuscript could help understand the future climate of New England.
Concern that flowers are blooming earlier is about more than wish to return to the good old days.
Plants react to a combination of changes in temperature and water availability in different ways.
Allochrony is one of few ways for wind-pollinated species to achieve reproductive isolation.
Flowering phenology appears to have a strong genetic component, and may serve as a barrier to hybridization
Simultaneous flowering and low pollinator specialization led to greater reproductive success.
Volunteers produced the most accurate annotations in-person, but both in-person and online volunteers gave good results.
Optimum vegetation for the roe deer reproductive season is coming earlier in the year, but the birth dates lagging, leaving less forage for deer at a critical time.
The relationship between twig cross-sectional area and leaf surface area varied little over the course of the season.
Understanding what makes invasive plant species so good at invading may help us protect vulnerable plant biodiversity.
