Specialisation within the DWARF14 protein family confers distinct responses to karrikins and strigolactones in Arabidopsis
Karrikins are butenolides derived from burnt vegetation that stimulate seed germination and enhance seedling responses to light. Strigolactones are endogenous butenolide hormones that regulate shootExpand

Climate change and plant regeneration from seed
At the core of plant regeneration, temperature and water supply are critical drivers for seed dormancy (initiation, break) and germination. Hence, global climate change is altering theseExpand

Terrestrial orchid conservation in the age of extinction.
BACKGROUND Conservation through reserves alone is now considered unlikely to achieve protection of plant species necessary to mitigate direct losses of habitat and the pervasive impact of globalExpand

The promotive effect of smoke derived from burnt native vegetation on seed germination of Western Australian plants
Exposure of dormant seed to cold smoke derived from burnt native vegetation had a positive influence on germination in one or more seed provenances in 45 out of 94 species of native WesternExpand

A Compound from Smoke That Promotes Seed Germination
Exposure of seeds to aerosol smoke or crude smoke extracts stimulates the germination of a number of fire-dependent and fire-independent plant species. We now report the identity of aExpand

F-box protein MAX2 has dual roles in karrikin and strigolactone signaling in Arabidopsis thaliana
Smoke is an important abiotic cue for plant regeneration in postfire landscapes. Karrikins are a class of compounds discovered in smoke that promote seed germination and influence early developmentExpand

Strigolactone Hormones and Their Stereoisomers Signal through Two Related Receptor Proteins to Induce Different Physiological Responses in Arabidopsis1[W]
Strigolactone hormones signal through a specific receptor to induce particular responses in Arabidopsis, whereas their stereoisomers induce different responses by signaling through a closely relatedExpand

Seed Ageing and Smoke: Partner Cuesin the Amelioration of Seed Dormancyin Selected Australian Native Species
Seed germination of many Australian native plant species has consistently proven to be fractious. With the discovery of smoke-mediated germination, it is now possible to better understand theExpand

Reconnecting plants and pollinators: challenges in the restoration of pollination mutualisms.
Ecological restoration of plant-pollinator interactions has received surprisingly little attention, despite animal-mediated pollination underpinning reproduction of the majority of higher plants.Expand
