Climate warming linked to tree leaf unfolding and flowering growing apart

An international team of researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Zhejiang A & F University and the University of Eastern Finland have found that regardless of whether flowering or leaf unfolding occurred first in a species, the first event advanced more than the second over the last seven decades. In the four European tree […]

Environmental cues control cassava flowering

Cassava generally produces flowers in the dry season in mountainous areas. Credit: © 2020 RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science New knowledge about the flowering mechanism of a popular cassava cultivar, gleaned by a RIKEN-led study, could help efforts to produce improved breeds of the crop. Cassava is a major tropical crop that provides sustenance […]
