New publication – Spectacular oscillations in plant isoprene emission explain the enigmatic CO2 response

Text by Lauri Laanisto Well, I do love a paper which says both spectacular and enigmatic in its title! That should be quite a hook for news agencies? Ok. As the one sentence summary says: Oscillations in isoprene emission demonstrate … Continue reading

New paper published – How specialized volatiles respond to chronic, and short‐term physiological and shock heat stress in Brassica nigra

Text by Lauri Laanisto Our PhD student Kaia has published her first first-author paper, which will probably be the cornerstone of her thesis. She has been studying the physiological nooks and crannies of heat stress in plants. What are the … Continue reading

New paper published -The photosynthetic capacity in 35 ferns and fern allies: mesophyll CO2 diffusion as a key trait

Text by Tiina Tosens Mesophyll conductance is an important limiter of photosynthesis. It is generally thought to be especially important in evolutionarily older plant groups. However, very little research has been conducted in this field with more basal plant species. … Continue reading

New paper accepted – The photosynthetic capacity in 35 ferns and fern allies: mesophyll CO2 diffusion as a key trait

The results from a rather global experiment have just been accepted in New Phytologist. It was a collaboration between Estonian, Japanese, Spanish and Chilean researchers, who measured the photosynthetic capacity of 35 fern species growing in different continents. It´s more … Continue reading

New paper published – Bisphosphonate inhibitors reveal a large elasticity of plastidic isoprenoid synthesis pathway in isoprene-emitting hybrid aspen

Text by Ülo Niinemets Isoprenoids constitute a versatile pathway of compounds that play major roles as integral components of foliage photosynthetic apparatus (chlorophylls and carotenoids) and as volatile infochemicals and molecules improving plant stress resistance via their antioxidant and membrane-stabilizing … Continue reading
