Gene transfer to plants by diverse species of bacteria
It is shown that several species of bacteria outside the Agrobacterium genus can be modified to mediate gene transfer to a number of diverse plants, which may lead to new uses of natural bacteria–plant interactions to achieve plant transformation.
Genetic potential and stability of carotene content in cassava roots
The range of variability for carotene content in a sub-set of the global cassava germplasm collection is studied, and the inheritance of carotenes, as well as their stability in response to different processing methodologies are determined.

This paper analysed the genome-wide occurrence and positional arrangements of two well-described ABA-responsive cis-regulatory elements, ABRE and CE3, in thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana) and rice and found that while ABRE is equally abundant in both species, CE3 is practically absent in Arabidopsis.
Infrared thermal sensing of plant canopies as a screening technique for dehydration avoidance in wheat
The high level of aluminum resistance in signalgrass is not associated with known mechanisms of external aluminum detoxification in root apices.
In the presence, but not absence, of Al, root apices of signalgrass alkalinized the rhizosphere more than did those of ruzigrass, indicating that the main mechanism of Al resistance in signalgrass does not involve external detoxification of Al.
Stem Reserve Mobilisation Supports Wheat-grain Filling Under Heat Stress
The superior capacity of V5 for grain filling from mobilised stem reserves is a consti- tutive trait which supports grain filling under heat stress which can be tested for by chemical desiccation of plants under non-stressed conditions.
