Effects of environmental variation during seed production on seed dormancy and germination Steve Penfield
Environmental signals during seed production strongly affect seed dormancy at harvest and are exploited by plants to generate variation in dormancy levels among progeny
Interactions between nitrate and ammonium in their uptake, allocation, assimilation and signaling in plants Takushi Hachiya and Hitoshi Sakakibara
Two major nitrogen sources, nitrate and ammonium, interact in their uptake, allocation, assimilation and signaling
Genetic diversity and genomic strategies for improving drought and waterlogging tolerance in soybeans B Valliyodan, Heng Ye, Li Song, M Murphy, GJ Shannon and HT Nguyen
Progress and future prospects in soybean improvement for drought and flooding tolerance, including genetic diversity and genomic strategies
The biomechanics of seed germination Tina LH Steinbrecher and Gerhard Leubner
A contemporary perspective on the biophysical and biomechanical mechanisms of seed germination
Nitrogen Sensing in Legumes Jeremy D Murray, Cheng-Wu Liu, Yi Chen and Anthony J Miller
The ability of legume nodules to fix atmospheric nitrogen is regulated by their nitrogen status. Legume nitrogen sensing is therefore very important for the environmental input of nitrogen
