Arabidopsis growth under prolonged high temperature and water deficit: independent or interactive effects?

Plant, Cell & Environment 2012 Denis Vile, Marjorie Pervent, Michaël Belluau, François Vasseur, Justine Bresson, Bertrand Muller, Christine Granier, Thierry Simonneau High temperature (HT) and water deficit (WD) are frequent environmental constraints restricting plant growth and productivity. These stresses often occur simultaneously in the field, but little is known about their combined impacts on plant… Continue reading Arabidopsis growth under prolonged high temperature and water deficit: independent or interactive effects?

Changes in light intensity reveal a major role for carbon balance in Arabidopsis responses to high temperature

Plant, Cell & Environment 2011 François Vasseur, Florent Pantin, Denis Vile High temperature (HT) is a major limiting factor for plant productivity. Because some responses to HT, notably hyponasty, resemble those encountered in low light (LL), we hypothesized that plant responses to HT are under the control of carbon balance. We analysed the interactive effects… Continue reading Changes in light intensity reveal a major role for carbon balance in Arabidopsis responses to high temperature
