Sandalio and Romero-Puertas review the metabolism of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS and RNS) in peroxisomes and their contribution to the regulation of plant development and acclimation to stress conditions.
de Pinto et al. provide an overview of the redox pathways that contribute to how plants cope with heat stress, focussing on the roles of reactive oxygen species (ROS), redox metabolites and enzymes in the signalling pathways leading to the activation of defence responses.
This study explores phloem evolution in the species-rich Bignonieae (Bignoniaceae) tribe.
This study finds that DNA methylation and 5-methylcytosine play key roles in determining the ageing and viability of stored recalcitrant seeds.
High levels of polymorphism exist within and between sexually reproducing Crocus species except 17 C. sativus accessions, where polymorphisms are absent.
Semi-dwarf phenotypes are not responsible for the observed diversity in the root system growth and architecture seen in Arabidopsis thaliana.
Evolutionary changes in reproductive compatibility is an important process contributing to the high levels of species diversity in Dendrobium.
Aggregation pheromones released by the flowers of Specklinia orchids attract flies from the Drosophila genus for pollination.
This study identifies saprotrophic mycorrhizal fungi for seven mycoheterotrophic orchid species growing in four humid and warm subtropical forests in Taiwan
