Un misterio persiguió a Darwin hasta sus últimos días. ¿Cómo habían surgido las flores? ¿Cómo se habían dispersado y diversificado tan rápido? ¿La naturaleza daba saltos? De ser así toda su teoría podía estar en peligro. Esto y muchas otras cosas sobre ese “misterio abominable” lo podéis encontrar en el artículo basado en el trabajo de William Friedman.
In the American Journal of Botany, Arboretum Putnam Fellow, Elizabeth Spriggs and colleagues investigated closely related species of Viburnum using sequencing and herbarium specimens. They found that flowering time differences helped maintain separation of species in populations growing in close proximity. Abstract»
In experiments conducted at the Arboretum, Elizabeth Wolkovich and colleagues showed that plant genetics can help provide more accurate predictions of when plants will break bud in spring as climate change progresses. Read more on phys.org.
In Global Change Biology, Cat Chamberlain, Elizabeth Wolkovich, and colleagues reviewed studies and metrics for measuring false spring and freeze damage risk, and suggest an integrated approach for modeling future outcomes. Abstract»
Each spring the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University offers a research fellowship and a number of awards to support independent research projects submitted by students, post-doctoral researchers, and biological and horticultural science professionals. Stemming from the Arboretum’s mission to support and facilitate scientific inquiry and knowledge sharing about the plant kingdom, these opportunities enable researchers […]
Plants fuel Earth’s biodiversity, connecting humans to all parts of the biological world around them. Giving scientists and non-scientists access to accurate knowledge about the evolutionary forces that generate species is the motivating force behind the work of Robin Hopkins, Assistant Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard and Faculty Fellow at the Arnold […]
