How the Afterlife of Bark Controls Wood Decomposition
Woody debris (WD) is a critical but often overlooked component of forest ecosystems. WD represents a globally significant carbon stock, and its decomposition returns nutrients to the soil while providing habitat to microbes, plants and animals. Understanding what drives WD decomposition is theref... More>>
Aphid Feeding can Activate Systemic Defense Responses in both the...
It has long been known that when a plant is attacked by herbivores, defense responses are generated, which travels from the wounded organ to other parts of the plant that thwarts further attack by the herbivores. Many parasites, especially the holoparasitic ones, usually have highly altered morph... More>>
Researchers discuss the Chemistry and Biological Activity Progres...
Polycyclic polyprenylated acylphloroglucinols (PPAPs), possessing highly oxygenated acylphloroglucinol-derived cores decorated with isoprenyl or geranyl side-chains, are a group of structurally fascinating and synthetically challenging natural products that collectively exhibit a broad range of b...

Phylogeny and Systematics of the Brake Fern Genus Pteris...
The fern genus Pteris was published by Linnaeus in 1753. The genus contains ca. 200 to 250 species, distributed throughout the tropical, subtropical, and temperate areas of all continents except Antarctica.

High-Yield Production of Carotenoids Essential for Human Health b...
Carotenoids are yellow to red pigments synthesized by all photosynthetic organisms. Lutein, β-carotene, and zeaxanthin are essential carotenoids for human health, serving as provitamin A or retina pigments.

The Story of Trade-offs in Seed Plants
The diversity of traits associated with plant regeneration is often shaped by functional trade-offs where plants typically do not excel at every function because resources allocated to one function cannot be allocated to another. By analyzing correlations among seed traits, empirical studies have... More>>
