Genetic architecture of plant stress resistance: multi‐trait genome‐wide association mapping
Summary Plants are exposed to combinations of various biotic and abiotic stresses, but stress responses are usually investigated for single stresses only. Here, we investigated the geneticExpand

Natural variation in life history strategy of Arabidopsis thaliana determines stress responses to drought and insects of different feeding guilds
Plants are sessile organisms and, consequently, are exposed to a plethora of stresses in their local habitat. As a result, different populations of a species are subject to different selectionExpand

Automated video tracking of thrips behavior to assess host-plant resistance in multiple parallel two-choice setups
BackgroundPiercing-sucking insects cause severe damage in crops. Breeding for host-plant resistance can significantly reduce the yield losses caused by these insects, but host-plant resistance is aExpand

SIEVE ELEMENT-LINING CHAPERONE1 Restricts Aphid Feeding on Arabidopsis during Heat Stress
Genome-wide association mapping and protein characterization reveal that the small heat shock-like protein SLI1 restricts phloem feeding by aphids and improves seed set during heat stress. The roleExpand

High-throughput phenotyping of plant resistance to aphids by automated video tracking
BackgroundPiercing-sucking insects are major vectors of plant viruses causing significant yield losses in crops. Functional genomics of plant resistance to these insects would greatly benefit fromExpand

Defenses against Virus and Vector: A Phloem-Biological Perspective on RTM- and SLI1-Mediated Resistance to Potyviruses and Aphids
Combining plant resistance against virus and vector presents an attractive approach to reduce virus transmission and virus proliferation in crops. Restricted Tobacco-etch virus Movement (RTM) genesExpand

Defence priming in Arabidopsis – a Meta-Analysis
Defence priming by organismal and non-organismal stimulants can reduce effects of biotic stress in plants. Thus, it could help efforts to enhance the sustainability of agricultural production byExpand

High-Throughput Phenotyping of Plant Resistance to Insects
Devastating insect pests and environment-malignant pesticides that are applied against them are still a major problem in agriculture and horticulture. In plant breeding and genomic research there isExpand
