Regulation of programmed cell death by phytoglobins Mohammed Mira, Robert D Hill and Claudio Stasolla
Phytoglobins act as cellular binary switches regulating metabolism, hormonal responses and cell fate to affect growth and development and plant responses to the environment
CLAVATA1-Type Receptors in Plant Development Ora Hazak and Christian Hardtke
Arabidopsis thaliana RLKs of the CLAVATA 1 (CLV1) type orchestrate key steps during plant development, including the regulation of meristem maintenance, anther development, vascular tissue formation and root system architecture.
Plant acoustics: in search of a sound mechanism for sound signaling in plants Ratnesh Chandra Mishra, Ritesh Ghosh and Hanhong Bae
Sound vibration serves as potential environmental stimulus, which triggers molecular changes typical of a signaling cascade within a cell and thus ecologically significant.

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
