The researchers of the study which was recently published in 'New Phytologist
' journal discovered that engineering a high-yielding rice cultivar, reduces stomatal density, helps the crop conserve water, and survive high temperatures and drought.
However, according to a study published in New Phytologist
there had been very little research into it.
The new work is published in the peer-reviewed journal New Phytologist
. The scientists said that understanding the effects of prolonged drought will give them a better sense of what might happen to carbon stored in tropical forests if, as scientists expect, drought events become more common as the climate continues to warm (earthsky.org).

A new Phytologist
study of the North American herb Campanula Americana revealed that western populations have darker purple pollen due to extremely high temperatures than eastern populations where white to light-purple pollen is more common.

In a paper published in New Phytologist
, biologists recently reported that they have discovered a key step in the evolution of this process, which not only helps explain the origins of a brilliant natural colour but also could have uses far beyond brightening your dinner table.
Now, Sniezko is applying for a grant from the New Phytologist
Trust, an international not-for-profit organization studying plant science.
