Plant-synthesized sesquiterpenes play a pivotal role in chemotactic interactions with insects. In Arabidopsis thaliana, FPS2 is involved in the synthesis of cytosolic FDP, a precursor in the sesqueterpene biosynthetic pathway. Bhatia et al. generate transgenic...
Bertolasi et al. investigate pollen dispersal patterns in a relic U. minor stand surrounded by U. minor and U. pumila trees scattered across 80 km2.
Zygotic embryos of hybrid larch, Larix × marschlinsii never accumulate phenolics whereas embryos cultured in vitro ccumulate phenolics readily.
Freudenstein and Chase analyse seven loci from 310 genera of epidendroids and find increased resolution and support for many groups.
Stark and Brinda study cultured sporophytes and vegetative shoots from a single genotype of the moss Aloina ambigua.
Improved knowledge of halophytes is important in understanding our natural world and enabling the use of these fascinating plants in land re-vegetation.
Shirasawa et al. develop a collection of expressed SSR markers in order to construct linkage maps for Hieracium species.
Leaf gas exchange is influenced by stomatal size, density, distribution between the leaf adaxial and abaxial sides, as well as by pore dimensions.
Sustainable intensification (SI) is a process or system where agricultural yields are increased without adverse environmental impact.
Flow–Force theory can be combined easily with changes in the nitrate influx rate induced by climatic and in planta factors formalized by polynomial curves.
