Calmodulin binding to glutamate decarboxylase is required for regulation of glutamate and GABA metabolism and normal development in plants.
It is concluded that CaM binding to GAD is essential for the regulation of GABA and glutamate metabolism, and that regulation of GAD activity is necessary for normal plant development.
The Cradle of Agriculture
Botanical, genetic and archeological evidence is discussed suggesting that the cradle of agriculture lay within a small region of the Fertile Crescent and began in the 7th millennium B.C.
Unravelling the evolution of autumn colours: an interdisciplinary approach.
Mode of Occupation of Tabun Cave, Mt Carmel, Israel During the Mousterian Period: A Study of the Sediments and Phytoliths
Alternative modes of occupation of Tabun Cave during the deposition of the Mousterian Levels B and C have been proposed. Garrod & Bate (1937, Excavations at the Wady El-Mughara, Volume 1. Oxford:…

It is concluded that homografting and heterografts of Arabidopsis inflorescence stems is a convenient and reproducible method for studying the fundamental cellular genetic and molecular aspects of grafting biology.
Agricultural Origins: Centers and Noncenters; A Near Eastern Reappraisal
A critical evaluation of the wealth of newly published geobotanical, genetic, and archaeological data provides strong support in favor of a specific core area in southeastern Turkey where most, if not all, founder Near Eastern crops were likely domesticated.
Plant Fiber Formation: State of the Art, Recent and Expected Progress, and Open Questions
Various aspects of fiber development such as initiation, elongation, cell wall formation and multinuclearity are reviewed, discuss open questions and propose directions for further research.

Constitutive expression of the basic-type PR-1 genes at the leaf and petiole or flower and pedicel interfaces may represent pre-emption of plant defenses against potential pathogens, suggesting a functional similarity to pathogen-induced expression in the leaf.
Distribution and Extinction of Ungulates during the Holocene of the Southern Levant
A negative relationship was found between the average body mass of ungulate species that became extinct during the Holocene and their extinction date, suggesting that the intensified human activity through habitat destruction and uncontrolled hunting were responsible for the two major waves ofUngulate extinction in the southern Levant during the late Holocene.

It is claimed that the enormous variations in coloration of leaves, petioles and stems as well as of flowers and fruits undermine the camouflage of invertebrate herbivores, especially insects, and it is assumed that the same principle might operate in certain animal-parasite interactions.
