Long day plants and the response to global warming: rapid evolutionary change in day length sensitivity is possible in wild beet.


Day length is a key factor in flowering induction in many plant species in a seasonal environment with flowering induction usually happening at shorter day lengths in lower latitudes. Now, the climate changes systematically at a considerable speed due to global warming. As a consequence, earlier flowering will be selected for in long day plants by favouring… (More)
