At last, butterflies get a bigger, better evolutionary tree     2018/02/15 20:39

Butterflies offer key insights into community ecology, how species originate and evolve, climate change and interactions between plants and insects. But a comprehensive map of how butterflies are related to each other has been lacking -- until now.

Plant survival under high salinity: Plant cell wall sensing mechanism     2018/02/15 19:17

How cells sense their physical state and compensate for cell wall damage is poorly understood. But a new analysis of plants exposed to salt stress offers the first experimental evidence and molecular mechanisms showing how FERONIA is essential for the cellular responses that ensure survival under high salinity.
