Domesticated tree crops may be the 'future of forestry'

...whatever qualities you're looking for, even if the parent plants have many highly desirable traits, their offspring may not exhibit all of the characteristics the parents have," Meilan said. A solution, he said, is to find a way to propagate trees without the need for conventional breeding. "With houseplant...

When plants need ants' help, bigger is better

...lings that do exist are not dispersed far from the parent plant. "The invasive ants take the reward and don't provide the level of service provided by the larger ant," Ness said. His team's current findings suggest that what's happening in the fynbos is not unique to South Africa or to Argentine ants. "We w...

Scientists discover that metastases share a similar genetic profile to their primary tumour
