Plant Phys: A modern ampelography: a genetic basis for leaf shape and venation patterning in Vitis vinifera

Plant Phys: A modern ampelography: a genetic basis for leaf shape and venation patterning in Vitis vinifera | Science | Scoop.it

I had to look up "Ampelography" - here's the definition I found, "the field of botany concerned with the identification and classification of grapevines".

 

Anyhow, it's a lovely paper looking at a combination of morphometric analysis of grape leaves from >1200 accessions, combined with mathematical analysis of shape and venation patterns, and finally with GWAS to look at the genetic basis of leaf shape. Fascinating work, and, of course, very applied (to preserve the interaction between genotype, environment and culture in grape and wine production).

Frontiers | The importance of aboveground–belowground interactions on the evolution and maintenance of variation in plant defense traits

"Over the past two decades a growing body of empirical research has shown that many ecological processes are mediated by a complex array of indirect interactions occurring between rhizosphere-inhabiting organisms and those found on aboveground plant parts..."

Mary Williams's curator insight, November 28, 2013 5:50 AM

Intriguing! I like this perspective.

As the authors point out, "Unlike most terrestrial biota, the vast majority of plants occupy two connected “compartments”–the open air and soil– that differ in many biotic and abiotic properties. Aboveground plant structures include stems, branches, leaves, shoots, flowers, and seeds, whereas the soil is dominated by the root system. These differing plant structures facilitate interactions between biotic communities that rarely come into direct physical contact with one another".
