Trees may invest more in protecting their canopy leaves from munching insects than their other leaves
Population genetics may decide if oak can fight off infections it has never seen before.
This study finds that DNA methylation and 5-methylcytosine play key roles in determining the ageing and viability of stored recalcitrant seeds.
Various transpiration and growth traits of seedlings of pedunculate oak, Quercus robur, are correlated with their multilocus heterozygosity (MLH).
Trees can mate assortatively, which may be a result of variable compatibility among trees due to genetic and/or environmental factors.
