NEW publication in New Phytologist
Superhydrophobic leaf cuticles retain thin gas films during submergence and this feature greatly enhances gas exchange with the floodwater. Here we show that the superhydrophobic properties are controlled by only one gene, the Leaf Gas Film 1 (LGF1). The discovery of the gene is likely going to have huge impact on future breeding effort where plant biologists aim at producing plants that are better suited for the climate changes that predicts more frequent flood events. This paper is the result of a true inter-disciplinary collaboration between the University of Copenhagen, The University of Western Australia and Nagoya University.
NEW Open Access publication in Plant PhysiologyThis is an UPDATE on regulation of root traits for internal aeration and tolerance to soil waterlogging-flooding stress. We provide an update on aerenchyma formation, the formation of a ROL barrier and on green photosynthetic adventitious aquatic roots. The paper is freely accessible from this doi link: 10.1104/pp.17.01157 or by direct download of the PDF version.
