Effect of saline stress and exogenous proline in maize callus
Abstract : This work aimed at evaluating the effect of different NaCl concentrations (0, 68, 137 and 205 mM) in two maize (Zea mays L.) genotypes (W64Ao2 and Arizona 8601) callus cultures in N6 medium

Vertical Gradient in Photosynthetic Properties of Spinach Chloroplasts Dependent on Intra-Leaf Light Environment
The study shows that both the biochemical and ultrastructural properties of the chloroplasts change gradually and continuously from sun- to shade-type with the depth from the adaxial surface.

How Plants Avoid Feeling The Burn
Too much sun – for plants as well as people – can be harmful to long-term health. But to avoid the botanical equivalent of "lobster tans," plants have developed an intricate internal defense mechanism, called photoprotection, which acts like
