Humans benefit from ecosystems which provide free goods and services. The capacity of ecosystems to deliver such services is under constant stress since humans continue to alter the environment. Ecosystem service (ESS) approaches have the potential to pinpoint multiple benefits that humans derive...

In this example, we analyse repeated phenotypic measurements of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) from a greenhouse experiment. We hypothesize that there is a trade-off between sexual reproduction (flower stems) and vegetative propagation (tillers) within polycormons of this species. This is not...

Precise control of the time of flowering is critically important for plants in natural and agricultural settings. This is achieved through complex interactions of external environmental cues with internal molecular signalling pathways. In this review, we summarize current understanding of floral...

The structure of the plant inflorescence is an important agronomic and ornamental trait studied for its potential economic applications: the capacity to modify inflorescence architecture has always been a breeder's goal. The shape of flowering plants is determined by the forms of the flower-bearing ...

The timing of the onset of flowering can be critical for the competence and survival of a plant species in particular environments. Regulation of flowering time in plants involves complex interactions between several endogenous and environmental factors. During post-embryonic growth, plants undergo ...

Tolerance of oilseed brassicas to salt stress is a complex trait, which is greatly modified by cultural, climatic and biological factors and by the degree of heterogeneity in saline crop lands. Brassicas exhibit susceptibility to salinity at seedling emergence and early seedling growth but are...
