Just like humans, when plants are cut they clot at the site of the wound. Just how they do it is has been a botanical mystery until now. Two researchers have uncovered the enzymes that produce this response.
Scientists performed four experiments in which they examined vessel type, hormone, activated charcoal concentrations, and using a vermiculite substrate to improve the post-rooting stage of an American chestnut propagation protocol. They recommended using semisolid post-rooting medium containing activated charcoal and humic acid in disposable fast-food takeout containers. A trend evidenced across the experiments was that activated charcoal enhanced root growth but slightly decreased shoot tip survival.
Strains of cannabis sativa or cannabis indica possess relatively few significant genetic differences and are often mislabeled by breeders, according to an evaluation of marijuana taxonomy published online last week in the journal PLOS ONE.
Calcium phosphate is a widespread biomineral in the animal kingdom: Bones and teeth largely consist of this very tough mineral substance. Researchers from Bonn University could now for the first time demonstrate the presence of calcium phosphate as a structural biomineral in higher plants. The substance provides the necessary 'bite' to the stinging hairs of representatives of the rock nettle family (Loasaceae). It hardens the trichomes, which serve as a herbivore defense.
Botanists have discovered a gene region in a wild tomato species that protects against an increasingly problematic type of tomato disease called bacterial speck. He will test out this gene region in cultivated tomatoes in the BTI tomato field, which was recently overrun with speck.
