Ancestral expression patterns and evolutionary diversification of YABBY genes in angiosperms.
TLDR
The expression data and phylogeny for YAB genes suggest that the ancestral YAB gene was expressed in proliferating tissues of lateral organs, including carpel-specific expression was acquired after divergence of the Nymphaeales.
TRY plant trait database – enhanced coverage and open access
TLDR
The extent of the trait data compiled in TRY is evaluated and emerging patterns of data coverage and representativeness are analyzed to conclude that reducing data gaps and biases in the TRY database remains a key challenge and requires a coordinated approach to data mobilization and trait measurements.
Regnellites nagashimae gen. et sp. nov., the Oldest Macrofossil of Marsileaceae, from the Upper Jurassic to Lower Cretaceous of Western Japan
TLDR
A comparison between Regnellites and other heterosporous water fern genera indicates that the genus is distinct from the living and fossil genera of Marsileaceae.
New “missing link” genus of the colonial volvocine green algae gives insights into the evolution of oogamy
TLDR
A novel colonial volvocine genus is identified, Colemanosphaera, which produces bundles of spindle-shaped male gametes through successive divisions of colonial cells and exhibits a missing link between Platydorina and the typical spheroidal colonial vol vocine members such as Pandorina or Yamagishiella.
Expression pattern of INNER NO OUTER homologue in Nymphaea (water lily family, Nymphaeaceae)
TLDR
Two homologues of INNER NO OUTER (INO) in Nymphaea alba and N. colorata were isolated and the expression pattern was examined by in situ hybridization, finding the pattern observed is very similar to that of Arabidopsis thaliana.
YABBY2‐Homologue Expression in Lateral Organs of Amborella trichopoda (Amborellaceae)1
TLDR
It is found that the homologue is expressed in the adaxial tissues of the carpel and leaf, in contrast to abaxial expression in A. thaliana, which indicates that different patterns of YABBY2 expression evolved within the angiosperms.
The leaf development process and its significance for reducing self-shading of a tropical pioneer tree species
TLDR
Leaf development and crown structure of a Far Eastern tropical pioneer tree species, Macaranga gigantea, are analyzed and it is concluded that M. gigsantea seedlings reduce self-shading by regulating elongation of the petiole and changes in thePetiole angle with increasing leaf age.
Dissection of two major components of the post-zygotic hybridization barrier in rice endosperm.
TLDR
It is proposed that the post-zygotic hybridization barrier in rice endosperm has two separable components, namely control of the timing of cellularization and control ofThe nuclear division rates in the syncytial stage of endOSperm development.
BAAD: a Biomass And Allometry Database for woody plants
TLDR
The Biomass And Allometry Database for woody plants is presented, containing data from different studies, transformed into standard units and variable names and it is hoped that making these data available will improve the ability to understand plant growth, ecosystem dynamics, and carbon cycling in the world's vegetation.
Differences in growth trajectory and strategy of two sympatric congeneric species in an Indonesian floodplain forest.
TLDR
Two sympatric congeneric species may coexist within a community by adopting different regeneration niches based on differing understory light conditions: P. diversifolium is favored over P. javanicum at high light levels, but the opposite is true at low light levels.
