The ins and outs of carbon dioxide John A Raven and John Beardall
CO2 supply to Rubisco can involve diffusive CO2 fluxes or a CO2 concentrating mechanism. The mechanisms involve CO2 loss in photorespiration or by leakage, respectively
How can we make plants grow faster? A source-sink perspective on growth rate Angela C White, Alistair Rogers, Mark Rees, and Colin Osborne
Source-sink interactions underpin plant growth. Improving crop growth and yield requires better understanding of how regulatory mechanisms mediating interactions between physiology and development are integrated at the whole plant scale
Outside-In links: cell surface proteins containing Extensin-motif Cecilia Borassi et al.
The presence of a diverse range of proteins in the plant cell surface which contains EXT-motifs highlights a putative well conserved functional role that needs to be fully discovered
Exceptional tissue-specific transcriptomic plasticity in maize primary roots upon water deficit Nina Opitz et al.
Maize primary root tissues display extensive transcriptomic plasticity upon water deficit. The most significant adaptive changes in the elongation zone lead to reprograming of metabolism and cell wall organization

Penn State News: Selective breeding of maize over the last century to create hybrids with desirable shoot characteristics and increased yield may have contributed indirectly to the evolution of root systems that are more efficient in acquiring nutrients, such as nitrogen. Read the article: Evolution of US maize (Zea mays L.) root architectural and anatomical phenes over the past 100 years corresponds to increased tolerance of nitrogen stress by LM York, T Galindo-Castaneda, JR Schussler & JP Lynch
CNRS: Historical herbariums of the rare grass Sartidia are an unexpected source of genomic resources. These data shed light on the C3 to C4 photosynthesis transition in the sister lineage. Read the article: From museums to genomics: old herbarium specimens shed light on a C3 to C4 transition by Besnard et al.
