Resin secreted by a damaged conifer.

Researchers develop a highly sensitive novel technique capable of detecting chiral molecules within complex gas mixtures more

The thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana)

Discovery that plants protect their most essential genes transforms our view of evolution more

Belowground microbial solutions to aboveground plant problems

Signalling occurring from the response of plant leaves to light and plant roots to microbes is integrated along a microbiota-root-shoot axis more

Balanced nutrition supply reduces water uptake in plants

Nitrogen may boost plant productivity, but the imbalance with phosphor reduces water use efficiency. more

At the methane source of plants

Plants produce greenhouse gas from the amino acid methionine more

Ants protect acacia plants against pathogens

Researchers discover an additional level of this insect-plant symbiosis more

Methane source discovered in the underbrush

The greenhouse gas methane is also released by fungi more

Production of mustard oils: on the orgin of an enzyme<strong></strong><span style="background-color: transparent; color: #0d4d7b;"></span>

During the evolution of plants of the mustard family a leucine producing enzyme mutated into an enzyme that protects plants against herbivores more

Barley genes against drought

With many regions of the world becoming more arid as a result of the climate change, the crop yield also decreases. New types of crops should therefore be more resistant to aridity. more

Formula discovered for longer plant life

Molecular biologists have discovered how the growth of leaves and the aging process of plants are coordinated more
