Well, this sampling of plant science news from July 2012 may not put us in “7th heaven”, but it will take us to Harvard University. And that’s pretty close…..right?
Anyway, the first two items below are indeed reports of recent research endeavors at Harvard.
From there, we go to some commentary on flower fragrance research at Cornell University, some interesting news on the effects of genetic inbreeding from the Netherlands, and, finally, a report from the UK that shows that more plants in cities makes for less air pollution.
New branch of science.
Mushroom relations – Harvard researchers’ phylogeny yields evolutionary clues.
Is what you smell more important than what you see? Natural selection on floral scent.
Inbreeding’s downside is not all in the genes.
Green plants reduce pollution on city streets up to eight times more than previously believed.
